A liturgical manuscript that contains the antiphons (psalms, chants, verses) sung during the Canonical hours, also known as the Divine Office or Breviary. Enclosed are 119 leaves of manuscript on vellum. This work is particularly noteworthy for its apparently unrecorded 14-stanza sequence in honor of St. Francis and an extremely rare example of Franciscan polyphony.
