Differentiae type
Information on differentia

Differentiae are written on staff-lines at the end of each antiphon, accompanied by "Euouae" or the textual incipit of the psalm. In the original Cantus index, differentiae were ascribed a two-digit code, with the number distinguishing between differentiae in a mode, and a lower-case letter distinguishing variations of similar differentiae (e.g., 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, etc.). The manuscript also includes a tonary (ff. 285v-286v).
