Gottschalk Antiphoner (fragments)

Differentiae type
Information on differentia

Differentiae are identified in the Gottschalk Antiphoner fragments by tonary letters. Here, the tonary letters are interpreted using the tonary in Engelberg 102 (ff. 139v-141r). Transcriptions of the adiastematic neumes are based on Die Sankt-Gallischen Tonarbuchstaben by P. Ephrem Omlin. Also see the rationale of the transcription of adiastematic neumed differentiae into pitched notation in Rebecca Shaw's thesis.
