DSC_2697The Elon University Archives and Special Collections is happy to announce that pages from a rare 18th century chant book in their collections is now available online. Scans of the original pages along with the Latin and English translations for each page can be seen and searched on this page .  The chant book, also known as the manuscript missal, was donated to the Archives and Special Collections in 2003 by Elon alum Royall Spence, Jr. It was created sometime in the mid-late 1700s, with parts of it possibly created in the early 1800s. A complete description of the book can be found on the website listed above. Many thanks to Etherington Conservation Services for digitizing the entire book, and a big thanks to our two Latin/English translators!
