News item "Chance discovery casts new light on origins of polyphonic music" in The Guardian, 12 December 2014. Ms discovered in the British Library: Two-part polyphonic work has been dated to ca. AD900. The article links to a performance of the work on YouTube that lasts about 1 minute. Unfortunately a reproduction of the ms was not included in the article. There's no indication of when the discovery was made so it's possible it has already been written up in a journal.
