Contents: 
Despite the comparison with other Portuguese sources and beyond, the liturgical feasts in this fragment remain indeterminate. However, chants in this fragment are usually sung in the week after Easter in other manuscripts.
Page layout: 
Two columns per page.
Condition of document: 
Single-leaf fragment. Irregular borders, the fragment has been trimmed to fit the book it currently covers. Circular hole near the external edge. The verso is today the external book cover and the parchment here is darker. Part of the fragment covers the book spine and its original content is now illegible.
Description of the notation: 

Medium size neumes. The axis of the notation is vertical. Custodes present. The difference between a lozenge and a more or less square punctum is not always clearly defined, see for example on the recto the end of the Communion (Cantus ID g01025) or the neume above the word ‘cum’ at the beginning of the same chant. The lozenge seems to be used consistently, either in isolation or as part of descending patterns in compound neumes.
