Information on differentia

When included, the differentiae in this manuscript are written in adiastematic neumes and are commonly restricted to the "Amen" only and written in a later hand. Differentiae codes that concord with E-Tc 44.1, E-Tc 44.2, and F-Pnm lat. 1090 are included in the "Extra" field of the original Cantus index, and entered here in the "Old Code" field. See Collamore's dissertation "Aquitanian Collections of Office Chants: A Comparative Survey." Provisional melodic transcriptions of differentiae were completed in comparison with these three manuscripts.
