[rkp. Perg. = Rękopis Pergament; The manuscripts still remaining at the Carmelite
convent in Kraków have been numbered (Ms. 1 - Ms. 5) chronologically, earliest to
latest, by James Boyce. The "rękopis" (Polish for 'manuscript') numbers assigned by
Jerzy Gołos, who ordered the sources by size from largest to smallest, have been
retained in parentheses with the abbreviation "rkp".]
A dedicatory colophon in the Wrocław antiphonary gives the date as 1397 for the completion of the manuscript and names several Carmelite friars responsible for its production, including the scribe named Brother Leo, the prior provincial Brother Henry of Greuenberg, the prior of the Prague convent, Fr. Hartmann of Tachau and several other Carmelites, the most interesting of whom is Brother [presumably Fr.] Procopius, the cantor who directed the choir for forty-six years. (The first part of this inscription has been transcribed in Inwentarz Rękopisów Biblioteki Zakładu Narodowego im. Ossolińskich we Wrocławiu, Tom III, p. 24.)
