Today we uploaded the longest sacrificium of the mozarabic rite. It is a sketch of our first melodic solution for the neumatic notation of the sacrificium for the feast of Justus and Pastor (August 6) as preserved in the early tenth-century León antiphoner.
The chant is famous for its melisma’s on “organum”, “modos” and “melos”. It also served as the major example in Rebecca Maloy’s great JAMS article “Old Hispanic Chant and the Early History of Plainsong” (2014).
