11 See CAO-ECE V/B: 23 April in twenty-one of twenty-eight sources; 6 November in twelve of twenty-four sources; however, with one exception every Esztergom codex includes the feast of the translation omitted in the Pauline and Spiš sources. CAO-ECE VI/B: this April feast appears in all Kalocsa-Zagreb codices: A-Gu 211, fol. 94r; A-GÜ I/34, fol. 231v; I-Rvat 8247, fol. 196. In medieval Hungary, the sequence for this feast, Corona sanctitatis, appeared only in Esztergom ritual books (12). The earliest source of this feast is HR-Zu MR 126, fol. 80.

15 For example, ‘on Ascension octave day’ (in fact, Sunday after Ascension), we are informed that the Spiš Gradual includes incipits of three alleluias, two of which are not in the codex, and none of which features in the sources selected for comparison (p. 119). In fact two of them are included both in the Kosice Gradual and in the Esztergom missal, and elsewhere, while the third listed here as Cognoverunt is better known correctly as Cum venerit. The chant Exultate Deo – Summite psalmum does not appear exclusively in Polish and Prague sources, as stated here, but is familiar from several Hungarian sources too, and the alleluia chants O pia regis filia and Sponsa veri Zachariae for the Feast of St Elisabeth can be documented from several regions of medieval Hungary, not only Prague and Poland respectively, as stated here.

17 The Futaki and the Transylvanian Graduals also include it: TR-Itks 68, fol. 292v; H-Bn Fol. lat. 3815, fol. 176v.
