Item specifics

Original/Reproduction:

Original Print

 

This is a sheet from a 1503 collection of the antiphons (liturgical vocal music) of the Catholic Church in Venice. Numbered as sheet 296 it includes the beginning of the Requiem Mass for the Dead. I bought this sheet in 1970 and have shown it to my music students for 43 years. Now retired, I offer it to someone else as a magical means of travelling back to a time when all music was handprinted with woodblocks. Even the staff lines were printed from a block with a one centimeter line repeated over and over. The music was printed on a sheet 21x 14 inches and since a church might only have one copy of the music, it could be held in front of a group of singers (although much liturgical music at the time was taught by rote). The music, of course, was the traditional plainsong chant which had been passed from generation to generation, and most church choirs would know it like the back of their hands.  However, I liked asking my teenage students to imagine a small group, five or six novices, back in 1503 staring wonderingly at the mysterious lozenges on the page held in front of them - just like them with a new piece in hand. The description that came with this sheet when I bought it reads "ANTIPHONARIU hymnorum sancte Romane ecclesie completu - Impressum Venetius cu privllegio MDIII".  The sheet is moderately heavy vellum with virtually no flaw except a couple of light creases in the corners. Printed on both sides of the sheet.
