Tomorrow, June 9, is the Feast of St Columcille (Columba) of Derry and Iona, so it is seems an auspicious time to begin this blog.

We are fortunate that one manuscript survives, from the 14th century, containing the music for Columcille's office. It is known as the 'Inchcolm Antiphoner' as it hails from Inchcolm Abbey in the Firtth of Forth. It is now preserved in Edinburgh University Library and can be accessed online at www.lib.ed.ac.uk/about/bgallery/Gallery/researchcoll/14thcentury.html

A CD-recording was produced by the renowned Scottish early music ensemble, Cappella Nova. Further details may be found at www.cappella-nova.com listed under 'shop'.
