The Spanish Antiphoner

The Spanish Antiphoner was donated to the College-Conservatory of Music Library by the late Martin G. Dumler, a Cincinnati composer, artist and businessman.  This 16th century choirbook contains Gregorian chant handwritten on vellum pages approximately 16 by 23.6 inches in neumatic notation with illuminated text capitals.  Pages 65-72 are missing, but 242 pages remain intact.  Digitization of this rare illuminated manuscript was made possible by a grant from the Tangeman Sacred Music Center with the assistance of Dr. Matthew Peattie, Assistant Professor of Musicology at the UC College-Conservatory of Music and Mark Palkovic, Senior Librarian and Head of the Albino Gorno Memorial Music Library at UC.
