Benedictine manuscript containing texts for Matins and Lauds from the Commemorative Office of the Virgin. This version of the Office was said most often on Saturday in place of the usual Office of the day. Also contains the Office of the Dead accompanied by musical notation for the chants. The manuscript once had leather finding tabs flush to the edge of the leaves, all but one (f. 96) of which have been torn out (for example, f. 1, 7, 69).
