Manuscript Summary
This large-format manuscript, which forms a unit with Cod. Sang. 1758, itself consists of two parts. The first part (p. 1-214) from 1473 (dating in the initial on p. 1) was completed in the 16th/17th century. Both parts, however, are not complete; furthermore, multiple pieces have been deleted and replaced with other pieces. The volume contains chants for the Mass – Proprium de sanctis, Commune sanctorum, Ordinarium missae (partially troped), Sequences and Tractus– in German plainsong notation ("Hufnagelnotation") in a five line-system. Together with Cod. Sang. 1758, this codex presents the oldest systematic St. Gall records of sequences on a musical staff. Several pages have book decorations in the form of borders and initials, sometimes with figurative representations. Until 1930, the manuscript was kept in the choir library (first of the St. Gall monastery, later of the St. Gall cathedral). (sno)

Das vorletzte Credo auf p. 278 bricht mit "propter nos homines et..." ab, weil danach ein Blatt herausgeschnitten wurde. Der Rest des Blattes ist im Falz sichtbar.

Pages 279 - 280 :

Das letzte Credo bricht nicht ab, wie in der Standardbeschreibung erwähnt, sondern ist ein "Credo breve", das so auch in Cod. Sang. 546 f. 30r+v sowie mehrstimmig vertont in einer leicht abweichenden Fassung in Cod. Sang. 542 p. 490ff vorliegt. In letzterem Codex als Credo zum Gallusfest. In Cod. 546 mit der Rubrik "aliud bonum breve".
