Gathering: 
Unknown. Catchword on Bv.
Page layout: 
Bifolium: 310 x 218 mm. Two columns 260 x 80 mm, 33 and 35 lines respectively, mainly with music.
Condition of document: 
Bifolio in good condition, however, the upper edge was trimmed with loss of contents (about two text lines and notation are missing). Ruling pricks visible on both folios. A hole can be found on the upper right angle of fol. Ar but it did not cause loss of contents. On fol. Ar there is the remnant of a library sticker, now removed. It can be read here "Anno de 1546". Two dirty spots on fol. Br.
Decoration: 
Plain initials in red and blue. Two very simple pen-flourished initials ("I" on fol. Ar and "I" on fol. Bv). Text in black ink.
Inscriptions: 

"23" was written in red ink at the top of fol. Ar, between the two columns. On the same page, on the left side, a modern hand wrote "Caixa 243, nº 15" in blue ink. At the bottom of the page there is a big annotation "Santa marimba de lousado", which gives us information about the provenance of the fragment. Santa Marinha de Lousado is located ca 30 km south-west of Braga. Immediately below this inscription there is another one now almost completely vanished (in yellow ink).

Remarks: 

P. Avelino de Jesus da Costa referred to this fragment as: "Caixa 243, 41 – Número 15 – Tombo de Santa Maria do Lousado, 1546".
