  • How to
    request
'... Ordo psalterii secundum morem et consuetudinem Romane curie feliciter incipit ...', a Roman Psalter, with antiphons and musical notes: followed at fol. 217 by a Hymnal, with musical notes. The hymns in the latter in honour of st. Prosper (fol. 240) and stt. Chrysanthus and Daria (fol. 250) show that the MS. was for use at Reggio. See Frere's Bibl. Musico-liturgica (1901), p. 54.

Mr. Bannister, to whom this Catalogue owes very much in its descriptions of liturgical books, notes that 'the MS. is interesting as bearing traces of the Urban recension of the Latinity of the Breviary', e. g. 'Exultet caelum laudibus' is here (fol. 253) 'Exultet orbis gaudiis', the corrections being in a later hand, perhaps of the 17th cent.
