Music: Polyphonic notation for two voices on red staves
Notes: Polyphony only on f. 1r-v; f. 2 essentially blank although f. 2v has 4 lines of music, mainly washed, with no words. This manuscript bifolium serves as pastedown that reaches under the spine of the book block, and is therefore only partially visible; something printed on parchment seems to serve as the back pastedown (only the smallest part visible). The incunable: ff. 1-386v, paper, 233 x 171 mm; produced in Nuremberg, 1488. Latin
Number of Texts: 1

Text 1: f. 1-rv; f. 2r-v blank
Title: Conductus
Language(s): Latin
Incipit: //Sursum corda elevate, dulci corda resonate, habemus dominum, non discordat vox a corde sed concordat lyram//
Explicit: //tia, documentis sine fallatia, cantu prosa, instrumentis dignis melodia le//
Notes: Only the top side of the pastedown is visible; in 2001 the Columbia Conservation Department attempted to lift the pastedown, but the adhesive was too strong and the parchment too thin; the explicit cited above is the most one can see. The incunable: Nicolaus de Ausmo, Supplementum Summae Pisanellae et Canones poenitentiales fratris Astensis ff. 386.
