ED notes: In the absence of a litany and the Office of the Dead can this source not be counted among the well-documented sources. It shares, however, all the principal incipits and many unique variations in sources located to Rennes, among others all the incipits found in two fragments of a printed book of hours in Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris [BN B. 23684-85], including the combination of the two collects documented from Lauds to Terce in the fragments. Only sources for the use of Rennes does match all incipits from Lauds and Prime combined, as they are found here.
Variants: *The second stanza of the hymn at the small hours is exchanged for each hour, as this: Prime: Veni creator - Memento salutis, Terce: Veni creator - Mater dei sanctissima, Sext: Veni creator - Domus pudici pectoris, None: Veni creator - Enixa est puerpera (it has not been checked if this also is the case in the other sources. Any similar compositions will be gratefully acknowledged).
