Collection of Songs and Hymns

Containing 326 compositions, 216 of which are not to be found in any other source, this manuscript is the most comprehensive collection of secular music from the late-14th and early-15th centuries to survive today. It is an irreplaceable source for the study of music ca. 1500 and includes works by some of the most famous composers of the period including Guillaume Dufay and Gilles Binchois. Although most of the composers are mostly from Northern France, the manuscript was created in Italy, probably Venice, ca. 1428–36. Thanks to the masterful hand of the scribe responsible for creating it, the manuscript is also valuable for the study of musical notation in the Late Middle Ages.
