A-Gu 29
Differentiae type
Information on differentia

A-Gu 29 and A-Gu 30 use tonary letters in the margins to indicate differentiae. A tonary accompanies the two manuscripts on ff. 377v-379r of A-Gu 29. The images reproduced here are from this tonary. A few differentiae are notated on the staff in addition to, or instead of, the tonary letters, perhaps indicating changes to the choice of differentiae at a later date. The original indexing system in Cantus transcribed the tonary letters from the manuscript.
