13th cent.
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.
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.
