Source: Brussels BR Ms.9391 [762] Hours c.1300, f.102v: "Ci commencent les eures nostre dame sainte marie". (ED229)
ED notes: Different hymn at the small hours: Sext: Solve vincla reis, None: Virgo singularis. Identification of the use by analysis of one of the two litanies, see: A Litany from Douai. The calendar is Dominican with local saints from Flanders. The Office of the Dead is for Dominican use (KO p.108). The church St.Amé in Douai was situated in Rue des Dominicain.
Please notice that first edition of this file erroneously had Post partum as antiphon to Magnificat - it is the versicle to the previous hymn!
Variants: No other source is known to me.
Other sources: Same as VL 179 and B426
