Commentary Location and dating is difficult. Marvin Colker suggests France; John A. Emerson suggests Beauvais, Senlis or Soissons, both 12th c. Bologna region 11th c. is suggested by K.D. Hartzell, cf. Vat. lat. 4770 or Angelica 123 for similar notation. Bologna notation and North Spain notation have many neumes in common, present here, while the pes, clivis and torculus present here are distinctively North Spain notation. .
