In the Calendar, the dedication of the church of Exeter (21 November; s. xiii ex.). The dedication of the church of St Helen's, Worcester (9 June), is in large blue and red capitals. It appears, then, that this was probably written for St Helen's but later moved to Exeter, where it was in the Cathedral s. xiv ex: the lectiones probatoriae agree with the entry for 'unum bonon psalterium' in the list of choir books of 1383.
