Collection:
Parker Manuscripts
Description:
These eight leaves, CCCC MS 641, from a Spanish sixteenth-century Antiphoner of the use of Rome of much larger size than the single leaf, CCCC MS 640, were given to the Parker Library by Andrew Johnson in 2008. The texts are from Lauds of Maundy Thursday, Matins of Good Friday and Matins of Holy Saturday, but as some leaves are missing the text is not complete. There are large calligraphic and coloured initials tinted in pale yellow for the responsories and versicles.
