Remarks: 

Possibly written at the Convent of Nossa Senhora do Espinheiro, Évora (the date of 1476 was suggested in connection to the nearby eremitic monastery of Serra de Ossa, which is believed to have commissioned books back then); the initial part of the manuscript, up to fol. 17, is a later addition. On fols. 71v ff., a 2-voice Credo.
