In medio, without its ‘n’; poor melodic material for the office of St-John; a bookmarker – nice features of yet another episode of the Antiphonary Walkthrough. Spread the word!
Take a look at episode 63, and say “Codices Claustroneoburgensis” three times in a row!
Episode 62, which means that we have arrived at exactly one tenth of the job (the Antiphonary Walkthrough will consists of 621 movies). That calls for a celebration. Watch how I have managed to sneak David Bowie into this movie. Enjoy!
And have a look at number 50 as well:
An initial X compared with another initial X in the twin volume of our late fifteenth-century antiphonary. Exciting. Watch!
And have a look at some previous episodes:
Antiphons with ambitious length, resulting in an antiphon cut down to two thirds of its original length. The story continues…
Count the notes and divide them by the amount of syllables, and you get these sexy notes-per-syllable factors. Super cool!
Have a look at some previous episodes of the Antiphonary Walkthrough:
This page from our 1481 antiphoner holds a series of antiphons for the Matins of Saint John in the most classical of orders: 1st antiphon in 1st mode, 2nd antiphon in 2nd mode etc. Sixth antiphon (so, in sixth mode) will be compared with a version of the same in the thirteenth-century Antiphonarium Massiliense. Great!
Take a look at some other exciting stories:
Complicated rubrics to be seen (twice) on this totally unspoiled, original page from the 1481 Ghent antiphonary we are studying. Watch!
With Christmas times slowly approaching, watch this beautiful first page of the Christmas Matins:
Longest episode of the Antiphonary Walkthrough to date. Nine and a half minutes of antiphonary fun, looking at folio 27 verso. Enjoy!
Folio 27 of the Ghent 1481 antiphonary is one of those quiet non-spectacular pages. It shows responsories for the third nocturn of Matins for Saint Stephen. Exciting!
Enjoy some previous episodes of the big Walkthrough thing:
New episode in the Antiphonary Walkthrough saga, with a helpful overview of the structure of monastic matins. Cheers!
See me handling a new loupe in this new episode of the Antiphonary Walkthrough – enjoy!
One of the shortest episodes of the Antiphonary Walkthrough so far. So if you can’t stand too much of the damned thing, this is the one to watch. Quick and easy! Plus: you get to experience the explosive start of the Respond Lapides torrentis. Cool.
After the celebrations in honour of the 50th episode, back to business, with these antiphons and responsories for the first martyr Saint Stephen. With a brief look at a painting by Lorenzo Lotto. The Stoning of Saint Stephen!
So, we have arrived at episode 50 of the Antiphonary Walkthrough, which calls for a kind of celebration. Watch us rehearse a few lines from f24v. Thanks to colleagues present: Paul Mertens, Rozelien Nys, Jonathan De Ceuster, Paul Schils, Adriaan De Koster, Michiel Haspeslagh, Philippe Souvagie, Sander Leroy, Pieter Stas, Gunter Claessens.
New episode in a 621-episodes story about a most exciting late medieval antiphonary. Once in a while you have to do something odd, like leafing through a centuries old book and taking your time to do that. Watch out for the yellow cursor.
Spilling of red ink alert in the 48th episode of the Antiphonary Walkthrough. Enjoy!
Pencil scratching alert in this 47th episode of the epic series Antiphonary Walkthrough. Devilish!
46th episode of the Antiphonary Walkthrough: end of Christmas Matins, beginning of Lauds. Enjoy!
