Cypriot-French Repertory

This sporadically-illuminated manuscript, of which there is only one copy surviving in the National Library of Turin, contains a poyphonic repertory of 219 pieces, including movements of the Mass, isorhythmic motets, and other secular songs. Dated to the early fifteenth century by a Papal letter on the first page, the text contains five sections.
