WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4, 2019
3:30 PM - Inside of Special Collections (Bartle Library, 2nd floor)

CEMERS, the Binghamton University Libraries and the Department of Music are pleased to announce the arrival on campus of the Gradual of La Crocetta, a sixteenth-century Italian manuscript of Gregorian chant originally owned by the nuns of the convent of Santa Croce in Florence (known as La Crocetta).

  • The book includes an original binding; many painted, gilt, and penwork initials
  • A full-page illumination of the nuns' characteristic red cross on a black background and other interesting signs of its provenance.
  • The unusually varied musical contents feature Mass and Vespers chants for several major feasts of the church year, as well as a complete Requiem mass.

*This major acquisition was made possible through the generous support of the Bernard F. Huppé Fund with an additional gift from Alex Huppé, the Aldo and Reta Bernardo fund, President Stenger, the Dean of Libraries, the Office of the Provost, the Dean of Harpur College, the Department of Music, the Department of Classical and Near Eastern studies, the Department of English, and the Material and Visual Worlds TAE.
