Information on differentia

As this manuscript contains the Old Roman repertory of liturgical chant, its differentiae are not part of the octomodal system. In the original Cantus index for this manuscript, differentiae were assigned a letter-number code to indicate the last note of the differentiae within each of the Roman modes. For more on this, see the manuscript description on Cantus.
