Strange and magnificent illustrations
The Lorch choir books contain songs for mass, sorted chronologically by liturgical year. The illustrations of the books are spectacularly beautiful. All in all, there are 108 illustrated initials and border frames, marking the beginning of major church celebrations, such as Corpus Christi or Pentecost. 63 ornamental initials indicate the beginning of smaller church celebrations. The illustrations typically depict religious scenes, but also sometimes show scenes from the daily life of the monastery.
