Other Titles: The 'Meyrick Page'
Author(s): Catholic Church

Publisher: Catholic Church
Description: 
Red 4-stave music written in gothic hand and square gothic notation. The text is in black and red. Five line initials in red and blue are filled in with red interlace floral designs, while the black initials are filled in with black. The blue and red linear floral designs, with flourishes and beads, extend to the edges of the leaf. Leaf from an antiphonary gifted to the Australian National University Library in 1984 by two sisters June Carnahan and Dawn Power (nee Meyrick). Named the 'Meyrick Page' in honour of the donors. The leaf is imprinted with the mark of an earlier collector, Ernst von Feder (1824-1904), Karlsruhe. Futher clues are needed to help identify the originating dismembered antiphonary which was probably produced in Germany in the fifteenth century.
Description: Manuscript fragment on vellum of an antiphonary containing: Antiphons and responsorial chants in honour of martyrs provided for the Feast Common of One Martyr.
