Contents: 
From the Octave of the Epiphany to the weeks after Pentecost. The hymnary starts (acephalous) on fol. 196r.
Foliation: 
Roman numbering starting on folio 113 (continuation of codex LC 9 in the same Museum). After folio 143 the foliation, in Arabic numbers, was added later. Some folios are missing: 126r-133v, 142, and between 195v and 196..
Page layout: 
560 x 415 x 65 mm; 540 x 390 mm; one column 420 x 290 mm. Fifteen lines of text or five underlaid staves per folio. Folio 213 with 7 staves.
Condition of document: 
Bad. The upper edges are damaged, affecting the reading of the final folios. Some folios suffered text corrections, namely in the hymns (adapted to 17th-century liturgical reforms), e.g. fols. 197r, 198v, 200v: stripes of paper with new text were pasted over the original.
Bindings: 
Leather over boards
Decoration: 
Red, blue and black capital letters with black or red filigree ornamentation. Plain red capital letters in the final part of the manuscript.
Remarks: 

This was once part of a larger codex, later divided into LC 9 (Advent to Epiphany) and LC 10 (continuation).
