Here are some examples for the notation:
Ce manuscrit est magnifique !
Où est-il conservé ?
Very nice! Do you have more details about its contents? Number of pages ... notated chants ...
Si je peux me permettre de regarder les chants de procession...
Quelle est la cote de ce manuscrit ?
et beau dimanche de Pâques,
Superbe! Quelle belle découverte.
Voyez le Graduel de Saint-Yrieix, BnF lat. 903, 74rv, cordialement, GL.
ca. 280 fol. 8°
The book is in a good condition, some folios at the end (later additions) are damaged.
There'll be a possibility to buy this manuscript in summer 2015.
But only public and/or state libraries.
Interested persons can ask me in private chat.
Manuscrit magnifique! Whaw, what colours.
Will you be sure to update us when this manuscript does enter the market and where it ends up being sold to? Given the complete absence of Vellave liturgical documents from the High Medieval period, this is an incredibly important find, and certainly would have been nice to poke at before being a month away from defending...
Of course I will. I guess the auction is in mid June 2015.

Wonderful! A good idea.
I made a detailed description of the chants, notations and some liturgical items in German for "Beiträge zur Gregorianik 59 (2015)"; print in July 2015. Contact me in private for a advance copy (PDF).
