By the means of the following query options four different office manuscripts can be searched from various aspects. The codices have been inventorised according to the standards of the CANTUS files (cao).
Cod. 1791: antiphonary (square notation) from the Charterhouse of Königsfeld, Brno (Královo Pole), around 1375.
Cod. 1799**: antiphonary (Cistercian notation) from the Cistercian monastery Rein, ca 1240.
Cod. 1890: Hirsau breviary (adiastematic neumes) from the Benedictine monastery St. Georgenberg (Fiecht, North-Tyrol), around 1200.

For the two manuscripts with staff notation, music incipits in the length of the text incipits are additionally indicated. Thus, besides key words (such as chant text, feast, or genre), mode and cao-number, a search for melodies is possible as well (also in combination). A click on the folio-link opens the relevant image of this side.
