Following the Tridentine reform, this manuscript has been updated in the last quarter of the 16th century. Following the humanistic principles then current and promoted by Trent, the melodies were slightly modified, although generally keeping the main design of the original versions, these ones 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 "Sevillian and Roman (post-Tridentine)". Front and back flyleaves are fragments from a Sanctoral antiphoner (16th century), the former containing the antiphon verse "Deus et pater domini nostri" and the beginning of the Benedictus antiphon "Celebremus conversionem", both chants for the office of Paul or Conversion of Paul, and the latter containing part of the antiphon "Sanctificavit dominus", for the office of the Dedication of a Church. There's a small leaf, glued to the back flyleaf, where an index of the codex was added at an uncertain date.
