Berlin, Germany, Staatsbibliothek Preussischer Kulturbesitz, MS Germ. 8º 190
(Utrecht Songbook)

Provenance: Probably from a Franciscan monastery near Utrecht (Geering 1952). The name "Vincentius Traiecti" [= Vincent of Utrecht] inside the back cover may be in the hand of the principal scribe, and probably refers to the first owner of the manuscript, or the person for whom it was copied (HusML). Purchased in Leiden by August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben in 1821; acquired by the Prussian State Library in 1850.
