This illuminated manuscript is a missal which contains all of the prayers, hymns, and biblical passages read by the priest during the celebration of the Latin Mass throughout the year. The "Use of Sarum" refers to the Anglo-Saxon and Norman liturgy codified in the eleventh century by St. Osmund, Bishop of Sarum (Salisbury). There is musical notation in black ink on red four-line staves and illumination throughout.
