An image today that we would normally associate with the Mason Collection rather than the Lawrence Collection, but interesting in its own right. The title says “Latin inscription” but this is more than that, with musical annotation to accompany the words. This appears to be an ancient musical piece from a manuscript and we look forward to identifying it, and perhaps even hearing it played?
