Highlights of the showing will be:

¨ A second century hymn to Mary, Mother of God

¨ The earliest surviving Sacramentary c.700.
(This manuscript was copied by nuns.)

¨ Chants of the Mass in the eighth century.

¨ The earliest readable musical notation.

¨ Eleventh century artwork depictions of Gospel scenes.

¨ A fifteenth century choir of singers – who they were…

And many, many more……

The collection runs into hundreds of slides. If the contents of some manuscripts with 200+ folios are included the number of images would go into thousands.
