Kyriale from S. Angelo Raffaele, two other manuscripts and 2 illuminated initials
Following the conservation of the Cortese Antiphonary in 2016, the Archivio Patriarcale has asked Venice in Peril Fund if its supporters would be interested in financing the conservation of three further manuscripts and two single illuminated initials. The biggest challenge will be the conservation of a Kyriale - a collection of Gregorian chant settings from the church of S. Angelo Raffaele which is costed at approximately €10,000. The parchment pages are rotted and stuck together and the illuminated initials are in poor condition. The project could reveal more than is visible now. The conservation of the single initials will cost about €1000 each.
