SHELF MARK Basilica di San Marco, Libri musicali 13
SHORT TITLE Collection of 21 Anonymous Works: 4 Hymns, 2 Motets and 2 Magnificats (polyphonic); 1 Kyrie, 1 Alleluia and 11 Antiphons (plainchant)

DESCRIPTION

IDENTIFIER DOI: 10.14277/unive/vmo/soundstmark/2017/choirbook13
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION 33 sheets
In-folio. Maximum sheet size (mm): 476 (height) x 372 (width)

Before restoration (2015), the first and last sheets were glued to the front and back covers respectively: both were detached during restoration.
In or after the second half of the eighteenth century, the sheets were numbered in pen from 1 to 32 in the upper right-hand corner of each recto, beginning on what is now the second sheet.

The manuscript contains five sections, compiled in various periods by four different copyists and subsequently bound together:
Section 1: sheets 1–15 (numbered [1]–14): items 1–4
Section 2: sheets 16–18 (numbered 15–17): items 5–17 (plainchant)
Section 3: sheets 19–22 (numbered 18–21): item 18
Section 4: sheets 23–27 (numbered 22–26): item 19
Section 5: sheets 28–33 (numbered 27–32): item 20

Three folios originally located between sheets 31 and 32 (numbered 30–31) were cut out and removed. The continuity of musical content indicates that the operation was carried out prior to the compilation of sheet 32.
BINDING Cover in paperboard. Corners and spine reinforced with parchment. The binding certainly postdates 1755, as shown by an annotation on the verso of the final sheet, visible only after restoration of the volume in 2015 (insofar as the sheet was previously glued to the back board): see Notes.
MATERIAL Paper: 4 types

Type 1: Sheets 1–15 (numbered [1]–14)
Chain line width (mm): 36
Watermark 1a (centre of half-sheet): Crossbow in circle with trefoil
Watermark 1b (centre of half-sheet): Flag (with 82 mm pole) and monograms ‘G’ ‘33’

Type 2: Sheets 16–18 (numbered 15–17)
Chain line width (mm): 36
Watermark 2a (centre of half-sheet): Flag (with 82 mm pole)
Watermark 2b (centre of half-sheet): Trefoil with number ‘3’ and, underneath, ‘G’ ‘3’

Type 3: Sheets 19–27 (numbered 18–26) and 33 (numbered 32)
Chain line width (mm): 33
Watermark 3 (corner of sheet): Trefoil with letters ‘b’ ‘V’

Type 4: Sheets 28–32 (numbered 27–31)
Chain line width (mm): 35
Watermark 4 (corner of sheet): Trefoil with letters ‘b’ ‘V’
DATING Section 1 and 2: before 1720
Sections 3, 4 and 5: before 1755
COPYIST(S) Four unknown copyists

Copyist 1: Anonymous 7 (sheets 1v–18r, numbered [1v]–17[r])
Choirbook 12 was copied by the same anonymous copyist.

Copyist 2: Anonymous 8 (sheets 19v–22r, numbered 18[v]–21[r])

Copyist 3: Anonymous 9 (sheets 23v–27r, numbered 22[v]–26[r])

Copyist 4: Anonymous 10 (sheets 28v–33r, numbered 27[v]–32[r])
NOTES The manuscript brings together four separate bibliographical units, compiled at different times and for different reasons. The first, third and final sections contain polyphony. The second section contains plainchant for Easter Vespers, when the doge and his retinue paid visit to the church of San Zaccaria, and for the feast of Sts Philip and James (1 May), when the procession made its way to the nearby church of the same name.

The recto of the final sheet is marked ‘11’ (bottom centre). This number presumably identifies an earlier manuscript of which the sheet in question was probably an endpaper. In ms. 13, the sheet houses the end of the final composition.

The following annotation appears on the verso of the final sheet: ‘D. Franc[esco] Bertolini fù sostituito | Custode de Musici l’anno 1755 li 25: maggio | per caduta Appopletica di D. Angelo | Vianello fù custode. –’. This annotation was not visible prior to restoration in 2015, insofar as the sheet was glued to the back board.

The letter ‘L’ appears on the exterior of the back board.
