Decoration: 
Richly illuminated manuscript, using several colours, including gold, with phytomorphic and zoomorphic motifs. This decorative style distinguishes two-line capital letters and one-line initials (these ones sometimes in brown and sepia). The illuminated capital C on folio 2v depicts a Nativity scene.
Remarks: 

This manuscript has been updated in the last quarter of the 16t century according to the Tridentine reform. Following the humanistic principles promoted by Trent, the melodies were slightly modified, although generally keeping the main design of the original versions, still visible beneath the erasures and modifications. The setting of the liturgical elements was also forcibly modified; in this case, however, it is quite impossible to see the original layer. Therefore, for the entries "Tradition" and "Use" above, we indicate "Roman (post-Tridentine)".
