  • M6409v Top half of a leaf from an early Missal, with instructions for recital , in Latin, on parchment [Italy (probably Lombardy), c. 1120]

Large cutting, with double column, 16 lines in a large and easily readable Romanesque bookhand, rubrics in red, small red crosses and letters ‘c’ on reverse marking Easter readings with ‘c’ probably meaning ‘celeritur’ (with force), one simple tall initial ‘U’ in red, another larger initial in bands of red penwork touched with yellow wash, and enclosing a spray of white vine foliage, 188 by 268 mm.

The notes to the reader with instructions on how each section is to be read or sung: “flectamus genua”, on bended knee, and “muta vocem” ‘with soft voice’, are not commonly found in liturgical manuscripts until the end of the Middle Ages, and they add to our awareness of the performance of medieval Masses, an aspect of medieval life all but lost to us now.
