The sound of the Rheinau Psalter

The vibrant colors and lines of the illuminations in this psalter are a good example of the fine High Gothic art. Although there are not many musical instruments depicted among the full-page illustrations, the musicians in this B [eatus] initial combine both the static and dynamic elements, that make the sound emerge our from the page.

The Rheinau Psalter, Zürich, Zentralbibliothek Ms. Rh. 167, High Gothic, Constance area around 1260.
