Einsiedeln, Stiftsbibliothek, Codex 610(88) : Antiphonarium pro Ecclesia Einsidlensi. Pars hiemalis

This antiphonary was written by order of Abbot Johannes I of Schwanden for the liturgy of the Hours of the monastic community of Einsiedeln. Together with Cod. 611-613, this manuscript attests to the introduction of Guido of Arezzo’s (Guido Monaco’s) system of musical notes with square notation.
