  • This manuscript was presented on by Stefano Campagnolo at the "End of the Ars Subtilior" conference in Certaldo (Pub as "End of the Ars Nova") but not included in the conference proceedings.  Campagnolo and Maria Soffia Lanuttia give the incipit as "Vis doulx regart en riant me maistrie" -- I have a rough transcription if anyone wants it.   There are many binders' fragments throughout, from at least two different manuscripts, but none show musical notation. No ids of the other works known to me at present.

  • I hope it will be possible to take digital images with UV!
