Remarks: 

None of composers attributed in manuscript can be identified with the Monastery of Santa Cruz in Coimbra, although it seems likely that the manuscript originated in Coimbra. Music exclusively Iberian in origin. Appears to have been prepared by a single person, who carried out the work in two main stages, corresponding to the first 40 folios and the last seven (now six). (Cf Rees 1995, p. 240.) Book appears to have been specifically compiled for performance; it also includes many written instructions to the singers. Books gives appearance of having been frequently used; also has many drops of wax on the folios. (Further information in Rees 1995, pp. 241-42.)
Original ink foliation. Original folio 46 missing; last surviving folio (f. 47) not given a number. This last folio has been given the new folio number f. 46r here (= f. [47] in Rees 1995, Polyphony in Portugal, p. 239).
