Psalm 066:01 (Vulg., 065:01) -- Christ-Logos, cross-nimbed, emerges from above under arch, with right hand blessing two musicians, one playing fiddle and the other playing pipe and tabor.
Figures of Christ and fiddle-player against gold background, and drummer against blue background in two registers, all within decorated initial I with foliate volute at top.
