Information on differentiae

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.
