Looking a little closer, though, you can see that the huge book contains a music score. I suspect it might have been set up on a stand in front of a choir (probably of monks or nuns) for performance. It would have been too expensive (of labour and materials) for all the choir to have individual scores.

Mind you, I have choral singing on my mind at the moment, having just sung in a big production of the Verdi Requiem.

Village of Piódão - Arganil, Portugal
#portugal
 
Piódão - Arganil (Portugal).

A aldeia de Piódão, situa-se numa encosta da Serra do Açor. As habitações possuem as tradicionais paredes de xisto, tecto coberto com lajes e portas e janelas de madeira pintadas de azul. O aspecto que a luz artificial lhe confere, durante a noite, conjugado pela disposição das casas, fez com que recebesse a denominação de “Aldeia Presépio”. Os habitantes dedicam-se, sobretudo, à agricultura (milho, batata, feijão, vinha), à criação de gado (ovelhas e cabras) e em alguns casos à apicultura. (Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre).

Santuário do Bom Jesus do Monte -Braga

O Santuário do Bom Jesus do Monte, também referido como Santuário do Bom Jesus de Braga, localiza-se na freguesia de Tenões, na cidade, concelho e distrito de Braga, em Portugal.

Este santuário católico dedicado ao Senhor Bom Jesus constitui-se num conjunto arquitetónico-paisagístico integrado por uma igreja, um escadório onde se desenvolve a Via Sacra do Bom Jesus, uma área de mata (Parque do Bom Jesus), alguns hotéis e um funicular (Elevador do Bom Jesus).

Foi elevado a basílica-menor em 5 de julho de 2015.1

A sua peculiar disposição serviu de inspiração para outras construções, como por exemplo o Santuário de Nossa Senhora dos Remédios em Lamego, e o Santuário do Bom Jesus de Matosinhos na cidade de Congonhas, em Minas Gerais, no Brasil. #Braga #Portugal   #Santuario

Somedays life can be a real bitch, and a lot of crap can put you down and leave you demoralized.

But then there are the other days. And the other people.
