Provenance
Princeton MS. 64 was written in southern France, probably in Aquitaine, to judge by both musical notation and evidence from the Sanctorale. Intermediate provenance is unknown. Ernest Cushing Richardson (1860-1939), who served as University Librarian of Princeton University from 1890 to 1925, acquired this manuscript as recovered binder's waste and presented it to the Library as a gift in the early years of the 20th century.
Source acquisition
