Remarks: 

The book was bound together from three sections from two different original choirbooks. According to the original foliation staring on fol. 22, a Mass is missing between Missa Brevis and Missa Aeterna Christi munera. The first Mass, Missa Sexti Toni, was copied by hand on vellum at an earlier date from the rest of the MS. Masses 2-4 are copied using stamped noteheads by the same scribe as Évora MS 2. In Évora MS 2 he is identified as Cassianus Lopez Navarro ('in Catholici Regis Sacello Succentor'). This scribe was responsible for copying numerous choirbooks of Palestrina extant in Spain: see Rós Fabregas, 'Libros de polifonía en la Catedral de Pamplona', p. 368
