Details of gathering structure unclear.
Page layout: 
Choirbook format. 558 x 405 mm.
Condition of document: 
Damaged in parts of both sections of manuscript: ff.53-63v (corroded); ff. 66-74, 87 (slightly corroded). Top part of manuscript of second section, has large damp patch, ff. 68-117.

1 paper type related to MM 26 (paper 4); 1 watermark (cf Rees: 1995: 370 & 387).

Old but not original light-brown tooled leather over boards added in c. 1937-1941.
A few calligraphic initials.

Latin voice names and instructions ff.1-64. Top of f. 66v: 'psalmi Sanctorum domni petri'. Voice names added ff. 77v-78, 83v-84, 86v, 93, 93v-94, 109v-110. Top of ff. 93v-94: 'Responsorium feriae quinta in caena Domini – Chorus secundus / Actor. Dóno Petro Chorus Primus'; similar inscriptions ff. 94, 95v, 96v, 97v, 98v, 99v, 100v, 112v-113.


Traces of gold(?) colouring to all three edges of folios, up to f. 51. Part of manuscript copied by Pedro de Cristo (see also MM 18, MM 33 and MM 36). Manuscript was copied in two distinct sections: ff.1-64; 65-117. Each section provided with margins and staves before music added; size of rastrum and system of indented staves different in each. It is posible that the two sections of the manuscript existed independently and were bound together later, although the paper used is of the same type in both sections.
