Manuscript SummarySummer part of an antiphonary that was originally set up in two volumes and later, when it was bound, was divided into four volumes. The antiphonary, whose other parts are preserved in Cod. Sang. 1762, 1763 and 1795, was written and probably also decorated by Fr. Dominikus Feustlin (1713–1782). His style is characterized by vividly colored frames made up of thousands of small rods surrounding initials and title cartouches. Title page with the coats-of-arms of St. Gall, St. John, the Toggenburg and Abbot Cölestin Gugger von Staudach (1740–1767) on p. III. More decorated title cartouches on p. 1, 36, 43, 122, 202 and 241. The summer part includes the Proprium de tempore from Pentecost until the 16th Sunday after Pentecost (pp. 1–121), the Proprium de sanctis from June to August (pp. 122–240), the Commune sanctorum (pp. 241–269), Offices for the consecration of the church (pp. 270–273), in honor of St. Benedict (on Tuesdays, pp. 274–279) and the Virgin Mary (on Saturdays, pp. 280-285), Suffragia sanctorum (pp. 286–289) and antiphons for weekdays (pp. 290–297). The melodies are written in German plainsong notation (“Hufnagelnotation”) on five lines.
