Decoration: the 3- and 4-line initials at the beginning of Masses are in two styles: several initials are composed of hollow intertwining vines in red outline on a blue and green background; other initials are plain red square capitals; 1-line initials are in thick brown square capitals; 1-line initials of Psalm incipits are in brown rustic capitals; rubrics written in red rustic capitals; liturgical directions are in brown rustic capitals as are the first few words of each mass; punctuated with the punctus; interlinear neumes are in the St. Gall style; liturgical notes have been written in the morgin of fol. 3v in a fifteenth-century cursive gothic hand.
Fol. 1 was used as a flyleaf for another volume; the bifolium was used as a pastedown in the binding of another volume; both fragments preserve a set of five rust stains in an X-pattern.
