On folio 191r there is one note in Spanish which says that the manuscript was written and illuminated in Lamego and finished on November 20, 1435. The note provides additional information on the abbess of the time 'D. Leonor Coutinho' and presbyter Afonso Martins, who corrected the contents of the book with the assistance of some religious singer ladies 'D. Isabel de Almeida, D. Branca de Almeida, D. Maria de Almeida, and D. Leonor Pinto'.
On folio 191v there is a later hand note added on request of abbess D. Melícia de Melo in 1528 and signed by Idelfonso Martinez which informs us about a donation made by Pedro Figueira to the Monastery of Arouca.
On the second initial guard leaf there is a note which informs us that on 6 April 1486 the abbess D. Leonor Coutinho ordered to send out this manuscript, along with others, for binding.
The Credo on folio 192 rv is in semi-mensural notation.
A cantus index is provided for folios 1r-3v, and for the Kyries (fols. 183v-184v and 189v), see the box on the right.
