Manuscript known as the 'Herdmanstoun Antiphonal', or 'Herdmanstoun Breviary'
DescriptionManuscript known traditionally as the Herdmanstoun Breviary, but more correctly described as an Antiphonal. It was written in the north of England, possibly Northumberland, but later taken to Scotland and altered. It has been suggested that was possibly written for the college of canons founded at Chester-le-Street by Bishop Anthony Bek of Durham, and that it may have been brought to Scotland during the reign of David II (1329-1371). The volume contains musical services as well as the text of Church services according to the Use of Sarum.

Medieval and early modern manuscripts
DescriptionA selection of over 200 volumes of medieval and early modern manuscripts, dating from the 9th to the 17th century. Some of Scotland's most important early manuscripts are included in the many Scottish volumes. These are complemented by interesting and significant works of international origin, including volumes from France, England, the Low Countries, Italy and a number of other countries. Most of the manuscripts were collected by the Advocates Library, the forerunner of the National Library of Scotland.
