Music manuscript: plainsong, neumes on 4 lines. Most of the side which constituted the outer of the book wrapper is too dirty to read. On the other side the text include the responsory for Matins in the second Sunday after Easter: [Response] In diademate capitis Aaron lapides pretiosi fulgebant, dum perficeretur opus Dei, alleluia alleuia alleluia. [Versus 1] Corona aurea super caput eius expressa signo sanctitatis.
