2 columns (each 69 mm. wide), ruled in lead; between guide-lines 7 mm.; writing above top line. Written in 2 sizes of early gothic, with neumes above the smaller size. Initials 6- to 2-line, in blue and/or red, with red or blue flourishes; rubrics in red. Binding reinforcement from spine; rubbed, creased and stained, with traces of glue.
4 fragments of a missale plenum. Portions of Dominica X post Pentecosten, Feria IV of that week, Dominica XI, and of votive masses for a priest to say on behalf of himself, and for the shedding of tears. Where they occur, the texts of the proper chants are notated in a compact, well executed, distinctive script of mixed Breton and French aspect. Some of the chants are cited by incipit. Unusually, the first of the votive masses is prefaced by a listing of chants which would be appropriate to it. The Alleluia for Dominica X is Domine refugium, and the proper collect for Vespers of that Sunday (not present in the fragment) was entered after the post communion.
215 x 98 to 161 x 42 mm.
