Ms. antiphonal single leaf written and illuminated in Castile, Spain, ca. 1511.
Decoration: 1 historiated initial Z (26 x 27 cm) of Expulsion from the Temple, with Christ driving out five men, in colors and gold frame. (Scene is modeled after Dürer's engraving of the same subject from Passio Christi of 1511.) Initial Z is formed of two drolleries in yellow on red background within gold frame. All borders are filled with flowers, foliage, vases, and a putto, all in gold and colors; each border contains a different emblem: at top a gold IHS is placed in a blue oval; at right in gray oval are five bleeding wounds; at bottom in gold oval surrounded with a festoon is a blue and gray shield with trumpet and the words MORTVI SVRGITE, all beneath a bishop's tasseled hat; in left margin in a gray oval is a similar hat surrounding a blue shield containing open book with words LIBER VITE.
Leaf contains the beginning of the first antiphon for matins of Maunday Thursday: Zelus domus tue comedit me et opprobria exprobrantium tibi cecide[runt].
Musical notation: 5-line red staves with square notes in brown.
Text written in 5 long lines of text, with accompanying staves; prickings in margins; written in brown ink in gothic script.
9 Spanish gradual and antiphonal leaves were offered by Arthur Rau of Paris in 1958. Following various peregrinations, their recent locations are: 1. (Initial A) Miracle of the Gentleman of Cologne [Pierpont Morgan Library M.887.1] 2. (Initial R) Resurrection [Pierpont Morgan Library M.887.2] 3. (Initial S) Pentecost [Norman Strouse, 1986] 4. (Initial I) Miracle of the Gentleman of Cologne [Getty Ms. 61] 5. (Initial P) Nativity [location unknown] 6. (Initial Z) Expulsion from the Temple [Detroit Public Library] ] 7. (Initial N) Miracle of the Gentleman of Cologne [Detroit Public Library] 8. (Initial S) Miracle of the Gentleman of Cologne [Beinecke Ms. 794] 9. (Initial Q) Miracle of the Gentleman of Cologne [anonymous collector, formerly of Jörn Günther and Bruce P. Ferrini]. Both DPL Expulsion leaf and Beinecke Ms. 794 are originally from an antiphoner. The Beinecke leaf was refitted for use in a gradual that once included the other gradual leaves from Rau. All leaves came from closely related sets of choir mss. that also included a Kyriale (Beinecke Ms. 710) and a gradual leaf for 1st Sunday of Advent (private collection, New Haven). This gradual leaf appears to be a conjunct to Morgan M887-1.
