Fragments of a missal, possibly Scottish, 14th century

 Item
Identifier: MS 211/XI

Scope and Contents

Missal, following the Use of Sarum, but with few rubrics. Contains part of Gospel, and Mass for the Common of a Virgin, which begins with In natali plurimarum virginum, and includes the Collect, Secret and Post-communion (f. 2r, Plurimarum virginum non martirum). Commemoratio b. marie quotidie in capella et in choro...officium. Rorate coeli... begins at the bottom of column 1 on f. 2r, and finishes in the middle of the Post-communion. As mentioned, the missal follows Sarum, except that Quoque prudentes is given as an alternate Alleluia verse in the Common of many Virgins. This is the same as in the 15th-century Arbuthnott Missal (British Library), the only extant missal of the Scottish Use.
