An early Irish liturgical manuscript containing a collection of Latin hymns and canticles, collects and antiphons. It is traditionally thought to have been written at the monastery of Bangor (Bennchor, Co. Down) during or close to the time of the abbacy of Crónán (r. 680-691). On palaeographical grounds, it has been dated to c.700. At some time, the manuscript was brought to the continent and kept at Bobbio until the foundation of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, to which it was transferred in c.1606.
