Two folia of notated music in Tufts University MS 24


The first musical sequence in MS 24, with the incipit Ave virgo virginum, was copied in Northern Italy in the late 13th or early 14th century. It precedes another sequence, Tibi cordis in altari, which was copied at that same time. Both texts are most likely of Dominican origin. This exhibit focuses on the Ave virgo virginum sequence, the first of the two; more information on the Tibi cordis in altari sequence can be found here.
