Anonymous transcript of the music for novena, two parts only
[Classification: notated music, manuscript, copy, parts, incomplete]
28 + 16 folios; 32 × 21 cm
Only the Canto (complete contents, but only a fragment of the title page with the inscription "Canto" survived) and Basso (last litany and antiphon plus the title page are missing) are extant from this anonymously preserved source; the other parts are lost. Both units are bound in a single volume with a modern hardcover as a result of restoration. Two different hands occur in the manuscript. According to RISM, the source comes from the Carmelite monastery in Győr, the watermark points to the Wiener Neustadt as the place where the paper originated.
Watermark: Coat of arms of Wiener Neustadt and the countermark "NPM". The paper probably come from a paper mill operated in the latter half of the seventeenth century and the first half of the eighteenth by the Pichlmayr family in Wiener Neustadt; see Georg Eineder: The Ancient Paper-mills of the Former Austro-Hungarian Empire and their Watermarks, Hilversum 1960, pp. 56–57 and fig. 399.
