1795 Processionale Pro Ecclesiis... Hymnos, Antiphonas, etc. with musical notes.


A well-used 1795 Processionale, containing music and lyrics, designed for rural churches, containing hymns, anntiphonals, psalms, processions, etc.. This copy is particularly intriguing for its signs of use; some passages are heavily thumbed, and even have annotations. In addition, the owner(s?) added annotations and a manuscript psalm and praise at the rear.

Interesting note, the royal privilege (last leaf) is given by Maria Theresa, the only female ruler of the Habsburg dominions.
