Hesbert at a glance (Sanctorale)
 
In these tables the incipits from vols. 1 and 2 of Hesbert's Corpus Antiphonalium Officii are so arranged that concordances and series can be seen more easily. The incipit of the chant is given once only, in the first column. The position of each chant in the source (antiphon 1, antiphon 2, etc.) manuscript is given by a number. Compiled by David Hiley.

To Hesbert's 12 sources, the Mont-Renaud manuscript and the Old-Roman antiphoner have been added.

The sources are

C C - Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale, lat. 17436
G Durham, Cathedral Chapter Library, B. iii. 11
B Bamberg, Staatsbibliothek, lit. 23
E Ivrea, Biblioteca Capitolare, 106
M Monza, Basilica S. Giovanni, C. 12/75
V Verona, Biblioteca Capitolare, 98
H St. Gall, Stiftsbibliothek, 390-391
R Zürich, Zentralbibliothek, Rheinau 28
D Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, lat. 17296
F Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, lat. 12584
S London, British Library, Add. 30850
L Benevento, Archivio Capitolare, 21
MR Mont-Renaud manuscript (Paléographie musicale 16)
AR Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana Archivio S. Pietro B 79


In addition, basic information about some of the antiphon melodies is given. If the antiphon is edited by Dobszay and Szendrei in Antiphonen, Monumenta Monodica Medii Aevi 5 (1999), its number in the edition is given in the column 'Dob'. This is also an indication of the mode of the antiphon (1001... mode 1, 2001... mode 2, etc.). The range of the antiphon follows, and finally in the column "gc" the notes on which the so-called "Gallican cadence" (C-D-D, D-E-E, F-G-G, G-a-a, etc.) is formed at the ends of phrases. Information on some series of antiphons not in the edition by Dobszay and Szendrei have been added from SD (Paris 17296) or SM (Paris 12044).
