A selection of texts and chants for use in a French Dominican convent, including the service for after the death and at the burial of a member of the order, and the processions for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter, the Ascension, Corpus Christi, the Assumption, and the Purification. The procession for Maundy Thursday is the distinctively Dominican observance of Washing of the Altars, in this case dedicated to the Trinity, Saint Dominic, Saint Margaret, the Virgin Mary, the Holy Cross, the Eucharist, and all saints. Liturgical directions in French refer to the women of the order and the Latin liturgical texts provide both feminine and masculine forms. The chant is in square notation on a 4-line staff. Notated text has been added in a later hand to the first and last leaves (f. 1v, 153r-154r) and informal notes in French also appear on the first leaf.
