'...Ordo Missalis secundum consuetudinem Romane Curie', Written in the last quarter of the 15th century in Italy

MS. Canon. Liturg. 197

  • How to
'...Ordo Missalis secundum consuetudinem Romane Curie', consisting of:
  1. A Calendar (fol. 1)
  2. Proprium de Tempore (fol. 8: the Ordinary is at fol. 115, the Canon at fol. 125)
  3. 'Proprium de missali', Sanctorum (fol. 173v)
  4. 'Commune Sanctorum' (fol. 223c), with Votive Masses, etc. (fol. 243)
Musical notes occur in the Ordinary in Holy Week. There are some fine small miniatures and large borders: fol. 7v is entirely taken up with the arms of Battista Zeno of Venice, cardinal 1468-1501, within a border, and on fol. 8r beneath a mitre are the 'arma dei Beruti antica Romanesca fondata sev in la cita d' Capō [Caprino ?)': these can only belong to Amadeo Beruti, bp. of Aosta 1515-25, and are presumably later additions: the mitre is certainly later than the rubrication of the text.
