Trent Codices: Alleluja, Veni Sancte Spiritus #
The 7 manuscripts known as the Trent Codices were written in two
different chronological periods: the older ones have the signatures
Tr87 und Tr92; the newer ones are Tr88-91 und Tr93. The first group was
probably collected and copied by Johannes Lupi; the second group by
Johannes Wiser. The pentacostal Sequence Alleluja, Veni Sancte
Spiritus is taken from Tr88 fol. 117v-118r, which was written
between 1456 and 1462. Sacred music fills the largest part of the
collection; French and German songs or instrumental works are rare.
Even today there are still many unresolved aspects about the Trient
Codices but at least we can definitely say that they were not designed
as a part of the local repertory in Trent because they only minimally
conform to the local liturgy of the 15th c there. (E. Stadler)
