Folio 110r

Devotions to the Virgin Mary, continued.

Hymn, Quam leta quoniam exultas, continued.



How great was her praise when she felt her earthly body carried above the stars. At the end of her life angels present the Virgin to her son; translated from this world, she is exalted in heaven above the angels.


Burnet Psalter image.  Aberdeen University Library 1998

choros scandit angelorum
Christus ad celestia.\
Quantus plausus tue mentis,
cum assump\tam carnem sentis
ferri supra sydera.

Peto\ mater.

Pater noster.

Ave.

Huius vite fine dato
te\ presentant dulci nato
angelorum agmina.
Et\ omnino hinc translatur
super choros exaltatur\
angelorum domina.

Peto mater.

Pater noster.

Ave.\


Prayer , Saluto te sancta.



A prayer to the Virgin Mary. The author invokes the words of the angel Gabriel and asks that through the joy she felt on the night she bore her son, whom she conceived as a virgin, she may gladden him at the time of his death and, through his confession, take charge of his soul; and that in this world she may help him in times of trouble.


Saluto te sancta Maria regina celorum et domina\ angelorum ea salutacione qua salutavit te an\gelus Gabriel dicens, Ave Maria gracia plena\ dominus tecum. Deprecor te domina per illam leticiam\ quam habuisti in illa nocte quando filium\ tuum peperisti sine dolore et labore quem conce\pisti sine virile semine ut letifices me in hora\ defunccionis mee et suscipias meam animam in\ tua sancta fide per puram confessionem et in hoc se\culo mihi famulo tuo subvenias in omnibus tri\bulacionibus et angustiis et necessitatibus meis.\


Prayer, Ave regina celorum laus.



A prayer to the Virgin Mary. The author asks that ...


Ave regina celorum laus et gloria sanctorum et to\cius trinitatis nobile triclinium, tu innocens\ plusquam innocentem genuisti tu mundi munda\
