Medieval music exhibit
A small exhibit of medieval music is currently on display in the Special Collections reference area. It showcases leaves from four different choir book manuscripts, from medieval Malta, Flanders, Italy and Germany. The miniature painting reproduced here comes from the Italian leaf on display, which has been dated to the 14th century. The image depicts Kind David praying before God, whose face appears surrounded by flames in the upper right. David’s crown placed on the ground in a somewhat unusual depiction of the Biblical king.
The exhibit will be on display through the end of 2023.
