The calendar of this Psalter, written in parallel Latin and French versions, was clearly intended for a Benedictine house in the north of England. It includes the dedication of the church of Embleton, a few miles north of Alnwick, in Northumberland. There is also an inscription stating that it was given to St. Mary's Abbey, Whalley, between Clitheroe and Blackburn. About a third of the way down this page (at 10 May), extending out into the right-hand margin is the inscription 'Dedicacio ecclesie de Emyldon': The dedication of the church of Embledon. About two-thirds of the way down the page (at 21 May) is the feast of 'Coderici heremite': of St. Godric the hermit, of Finchale (on the River Wear, about 4 miles from Durham).
