The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

Antiphoner for Holy Week (fragment)(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
This MS description is not part of the M. R. James catalogue.(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Codicology:Vellum, 770 x 560 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College). Late sixteenth century.
Provenance:Writing and decoration Spanish. Given by Mr Andrew Johnson in 2008.
Decoration:Five large 3-line calligraphic ornamental initials tinted in pale yellow.
In late 16th century Spain part Antiphoners were made only containing the music for the services for Holy Week. A complete example of 48ff. with calligraphic initials similar to MS 641 is in Sydney, University of Sydney Library MS 335, described in The Medieval Imagination, ed. B. Stocks and N. J. Morgan, no. 38. The texts in this fragment are from Lauds of Maundy Thursday, Matins of Good Friday and Matins of Holy Saturday, but as some leaves are missing the text is not complete for this section of Holy Week. The texts are almost identical to those in the 1568 editio princeps of the Breviarium Romanum. The original foliation on the leaves suggests that the book in its full form had rather more leaves than the Sydney Antiphoner.
