E-Tm (Toledo) número de inventario 1325
This fragment has two parts which very likely originally belonged to different codices. The first part, E-Tm n. i. 1325-1, is a fragment consisting of 24 folios (recto and verso) from a liber misticus (type of book containing chants, readings and prayers for the cathedral ordo) with material for part of the sanctorale of Post-Pentecost time. The second part, E-Tm n. i. 1325-2, consists of two folios (recto and verso) from a liber hymnorum written by another hand; one of these folios is sewn to the end of the first part of this fragment and has hymns for the day hours from the matutinum to quarta; the second folio is independent and has part of two Post-Pentecost time hymns (namely: the end of Sts Justa and Rufina’s hymn, and beginning of St Cucufate’s hymn).
Liturgical tradition: B
Randel responsorial tone tradition: Toledo B in Randel, 1969; but in Randel, 1973, p. xix: 'it cannont be said with certainty that all of the fragments belong to liturgical tradition B.' (i.e. Randel responsorial tone tradition Toledo B).
Date: Mundó's palaeographically-informed date, thirteenth century, has been adopted by most scholars, including some that had proposed other dates (e.g. Pinell, who in 1978 adopts most of Mundó's dates). Other dates: ninth century (Millares Carlo, 1961; Pinell, 1965; Brockett, 1968, though with a '?'); tenth century (Fernández de la Cuesta, 1980); ninth century and a quote of Mundó's date (Randel, 1973; Gómez Muntané, 2001); tenth century and a quote of Mundó's date (Millares Carlo, 1999). Only Janini and Gonzálvez, 1977 specify tenth century for the hymnorum, though I can add that it could also be from the early-eleventh century.
Provenance: most authors ascribe it to the Mozarabic parish of Santas Justa y Rufina (Toledo) because it has in several of its folios the modern seal of this parish. However, according to Janini and Gonzálvez (1977, p. 277), who do not specify the source for this information, this manuscript was owned by other churches (none of them Mozarabic!) before it arrived in the parish of Santas Justa y Rufina. However, the misticus in this fragment shares certain palaeographical and codicological features with E-Mn MSS/10110, e.g. the type of musical notation and the nomenclature for the chants (see Rojo Carrillo, 2017).
