5 The sequence melodies attributed to Adémar are those for Mente pura (IXA. 24D), Per secula (24F), Alte vox canat (24G), Corde devoto (25C) and Coaequalis (25G).

6 The relevant passages of Nobis annua (III.2.A) are as follows: ‘via lux veritas … per tempora’ (5a), ‘preces et munera … per secula’ (5b), ‘Et piis precibus … peccamina’ (9a) and ‘Regna concede … tabernacula’. For these passages within the full sequence text Celsa polorum, see Die Prosen der Abtei St. Martial zu Limoges aus Troparien des 10. 11. und 12. Jahrhunderts, ed. Dreves, Guido M.

7 The sections of Apostolorum gloriosa that are set apart by capital letters are as follows: ‘Te Christe … aula’ (5a), ‘Regnans sempiterna … summa’ (5b), ‘In carne … tua’ (9a), ‘Clara victoria … corda’ (9b), ‘Lux apostolorum … indulgentiam’ (13a), ‘Concede temporum … patriam’ (13b).

11 For the use of a custos beginning with a rising diagonal stroke in conjunction with neumes not written by Adémar in Pa 909, see fols. 150r–157v; for a custos in the form of a dash added to an earlier Aquitanian manuscript by a notator other than Adémar, see Pa 1120, fol. 2v, where ‘e’ is also used.

12 The fundamental study of Adémar's text hand remains Delisle, ‘Notice sur les manuscrits originaux’, pp. 241–358. The most detailed palaeographic justification for identifying Adémar's text hand in the second layer of Pa 909 is to be found in Emerson, ‘Two Newly Identified Offices’, p. 34.

13 See, for example, the addition of text and neumes by a different hand from the fifth line of fol. 14r through to the second line of fol. 14v.

14 A liquescent single-note sign in a shape akin to a ‘7’ is introduced at this point, initially in place of the curved single-note sign used in the first gathering, although this curved sign returns later alongside the newly introduced ‘7’ sign. In addition, the clives signs begin to be written with a more sharply angled head; this difference in formation is again introduced alongside the previously more rounded form rather than simply replacing it.
