Catholic Church.
[Collection of hymns and antiphons] [manuscript].
[Andenne, Belgium, ca. 1500-1699]
Physical description:
178 leaves : parchment and paper, col. ill., music ; 149 x 91 mm. bound to 158 x 96 mm.
Latin, with a few headings in French.
Hymns, antiphons, a litany, etc. beginning with Audi Domine; including Hodie beata virgo Maria; Ave virgo stella maris; Magnificat; Adoramus te Christe; Homo quidam fecit; Exsurge domine; Parce ce domine, parce ce populo tuo; Lux perpetua; Pueri Hebreorum and others; the earliest part of the manuscript ending with Inundaverunt; all with plain chant notation. Additions in later hands (f. 136r-161r), include the Pange lingua; Anthiene de St. Roch [sic] (with music, incipit: Ave Roche); a prayer, Ora pro nobis beata pater Roche; Veni creator spiritus (without music); and an index to 88 hymns and antiphons in a 17th-century hand (f. 166-167). Also includes: Repond que l'on chante à la reception d'une nouvelle doÿenne, with plain chant notation in a 17th-century hand (f. i recto). The chants are from a chapter of secular canonesses in Andenne (chapitre noble des chanoinesses d'Andenne), but not copied in liturgical order.
Possibly originally owned by the Chapitre noble des chanoinesses d'Andenne, a community of secular, noble-born canonesses in Andenne (Anne-Emmanuelle Ceulemans).
Formerly owned by Robert de Mol (coat of arms dated 1566, f. vii recto) and the De Noot family (f. iii recto), both connected with Andenne (Anne-Emmanuelle Ceulemans).
Formerly held in the Bibliotheca Elseghemensis (late 19th- or early 20th-century bookplate, with attribution Lith. N. Heins. Gand, inside upper cover), in Elseghem or Elsegem in East Flanders, Belgium, near Ghent.
Gift of Albert C. Baugh, 1965.
