Show Summary Details


The processional is a portable book in small format containing the chants for processions, as well as processional chant for Sundays and feast days. It is not an official book but a practical book and is of comparatively recent origin. Over 1,000 MS processionals falling into nine categories survive today, and these have been recently catalogued by Michel Huglo. F-SO MS Réserve 28, is an 11th-century processional from a small monastery in southern France affiliated with the Benedictine monastery of Cluny. A historical sketch of the MS processional in general introduces a description and inventory of this source.
