    Default Can Anyone Read Early Medieval Music Texts?

    I had a miracle happen to me on Saturday. I was praying about what I should do that day and I felt the Lord strongly give me an idea to go to a certain thrift shop in Burien, which is about 30 miles from where I live. I got this thought of finding an expensive music synthesizer, that seemed to be part of what I felt, but I don’t know if that was from me or God. I went down there and first found a copy of a 1900s positive thinking author I like named Orison Svet Marden. It was called Pushing to the Front. I felt grateful and didn’t see anything else in the shop so I left. I realized that there would probably be different things out if I was to come back, so I came back in an hour. I looked over and next to a guy I saw what looked to be a Medieval vellum music sheet. I asked him if I could see it and he said yes. I saw that in fact it was authentic, we’re talking about five or six hundred years old! It had no price on it so I realized I would have to get them to price it for me. I was nervous as I was thinking they were going to realize what they had. The young lady came back and gave it to me and it had a price of $2.99! I still thought I’m not safe until I am out the door, but I made it through and now it’s in my living room. It’s double sided like many of them are, and it’s Latin text with musical staffs and some ornate capitals.
