I have an old piece of music that my aunt gave me, and I am trying to figure out what it is. I think that it could be a 2-sided page of the Aboense Graduale. It looks very similar to a page that was on wikipedia. It is caligraphied in latin, and there are caligraphy letters that are artful, and neumes. I do have 7 photos of it. It is front and back, enclosed in glass and framed. Can you help me. I can forward photos to you.

Answer

The manuscript is almost certainly a Roman Catholic gradual book. It is highly unlikely that it is from the Graduale Aboense. I think you should show the manuscript to the faculty of music of your nearest university. I think the representatives of your nearest catholic church might also be able to tell more about your manuscript.
