Text 1: f. 1r-v
Title: Gradual
Language(s): Latin
Incipit: -cuitu eius offertis munera: terribili et ei qui aufert spiri-tus
Explicit: Feria vi Introitus, Letetur cor querentium; Graduale, Convertere domine; Offertorium, Benedic anima mea. Aufer a me//
Notes: Contains the sung parts of the mass from the gradual of the Wednesday of the September Rogation Days through the Communion of that Friday. Note that the labels with recto-verso designations included in the image are reversed. The first two staves present the conclusion of the communion antiphon for mass of the 17th Sunday after Pentecost. The text then presents the introit for Wednesday (feria quarta) and Friday of the Ember Days in September. In Latin, the Ember Days were titled the Quattuor anni tempora and included four groups each of three days (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday) observed between the third and fourth Sundays of Advent, between the first and second Sundays of Lent, between Pentecost and Trinity Sunday, and finally the week beginning on the Sunday after the Feast of the Triumph of the Holy Cross (14 September). The clue to situating the texts is to be found in I. 3 (beginning Exulta), the rubric indicates feria quarta quattuor temporum mensis setembris. Introitus. That is: "Wednesday of Ember Week in September."
