vintage score


Manuscript music .. 

The front of the book has an index for the music score of the psalms listed - 220 pages [one or two leaves left blanktowards the end] + 37 pages unused but ruled + 75 pages starting from the back of the book with both music and some lyrics - [but no index for that section]
the book measures 210mm x 110mm [approx 332 pages + index]
no date - the paper is watermarked 1812 - each page has 4 lines of ruled staff

The owner’s? name appears in gilt on the front ‘John Singleton’ sadly at this time we do not have any further information about him.

“Ho passato con lei tutta la vita, stava con me anche quando non c’era… Nella mia testa io dormivo con lei e con lei mi svegliavo la mattina. Tutti questi anni non ho mai cessato di amarla, è stata una cosa bella ma insopportabile. Gli amori impossibili non finiscono mai, sono quelli che durano per sempre.”

— Mine Vaganti, Ferzan Özpetek
