Medieval music of monks unearthed





A 12th century music manuscript used by monastic orders during Holy Week has been unearthed in the Borders.

The discovery was made by Archive Manager Rachel Hosker and her staff at the Heart of Hawick cultural centre.

It was contained in papers relating to the Rutherford family of Knowesouth, near Jedburgh.

The document will now go on public display and some excerpts from the manuscript will be performed for the first time since its discovery.
