"Spend five minutes with the Italian choir book featured in the exhibition Heaven and Earth: Byzantine Illumination at the Cultural Crossroads. It is one of the largest manuscripts in the Museum’s collection, but the intricacy of its pages is what I find compelling. The Latin words, the musical notation, the form of the letter “h” that encloses the scene of the Nativity, the monumental form of the Virgin, and the humble ox and donkey peeking over the edge of the manger at the Christ Child—all combine to remind me of why I love manuscripts.” 

Recommended viewing for slowartday from our manuscripts curator, Elizabeth Morrison.

Song of the day!

Mama
Genesis (1983)
Genesis

I can’t see you mama
But I know you’re always there
Ooh to touch and to feel you mama
Oh I just can’t keep away
It’s the heat and the steam of the city
Oh its got me running and I just can’t brake
So say you’ll help me mama
Cause its getting so hard

Now I can’t keep you mama
But I know you’re always there
You listen, you teach me mama
And I know inside you care
So get down, down here beside me
Oh you ain’t going nowhere
No I won’t hurt you mama
But its getting so hard

Can’t you see me mama
Mama mama mama please
Can’t you feel my heart
Can’t you feel my heart
Can’t you feel my heart ooh
Listen to me mama
Mama mama
You’re taking away any last chances
Don’t take it away
Can’t you feel my heart?

It’s hot, too hot for me mama
But I can’t hardly wait
My eyes they’re burning mama
Make the pain, make it go away
No I won’t hurt you mama
But its getting so hard “

Instant reblog!!!
