|Abstract:||Responses and antiphons 25th April-29th August. 174 vellum leaves numbered 1-346, misnumbered at leaves 270 and 317 but continuous (numbering probably post dates the manuscript). The colophon leaf translates as: 'The book is finished, praise and glory to Christ. It was finished at three days gone by of the month of August in the year of the Lord 1493. It was ordered to be written by Senora Dona Costanza Gutierres Abbess of the Monastery of San Bernado De Guadalajara' (year may be 1494 as the final number is slightly smudged).|
