The manuscript is believed to have been produced by the workshop of Johannes Grusch in Paris during the mid-thirteenth century, probably between 1245 and 1255. It contains the largest extant collection of music in the Notre-Dame style, mainly organa, conductus, and motets. The illumination consists of thirteen historiated initials and one full-page miniature which serves as its frontispiece.
The manuscript was issued in facsimile by Institute of Medieval Music in 1967.
