Genuine Antique Sheet Music

Middle Ages

Maker: Unknown.

Antique sheet music hand painted on vellum. Piece was likely produced in a medieval monastery as liturgy music. Each side features a highly decorative letter as a natural focal point. This sheet shows its age with some wrinkling, some areas of darkened wear, and a large tear at one side. Antique sheet music is difficult to date. We believe that generally sheet music hand painted on vellum was likely created in the earlier Middle Ages, while sheet music on paper that is hand painted would have been produced in the middle or later Middle Ages. French monks are known to have begun creating their own paper around 1350 C.E. Sheet music that is printed would have been created after the printing press was invented in Europe (1453 C.E.) and is therefore believed to have been made in the early Renaissance. These generalizations help give us an idea of possible age, but we cannot know if a piece was created in an area that adopted new techniques early or clung to past methods later. Good antique condition overall. Sheet measures approximately 22.5" x 15". Graphic and interesting, this piece is sure to be a conversation piece! **SOLD**
