Rare medieval plainsong discovered in Norfolk, UK

An unusual discovery has been made in the library of Norwich Cathedral. Conservator Lorraine Finch, brought in to check over books hundreds of years old, has found something hidden inside one of the covers: a 600-year-old plain chant parchment written by a monk, with a doodle in the margin, hidden as recycled binding in an old religious book.  Read the whole story on The Eastern Daily Press.
