Twenty-fifth Sunday after Pentecost, Pages 368-9
These pages come from the 'Ordinary of the Mass', the central canon of the mass
which is recited every time the Eucharist is celebrated. It contains prefaces
with musical notation for the chants used by the celebrant. This section also
contains realistically depicted English birds and a series of roundels in the
lower margins describing important events in the development of Christianity
in England and abroad.
Birdsong: the song of the skylark, which can be seen in the upper right-hand
margin of page 20, can be heard here.
