Uppsala 76a, no. 54, ff. 53v-54 »O quam glorifica luce coruscas« 3v (unicum)

O quam glorifica luce coruscas,
stirpis Davidice regia proles.
Sublimis residens, virgo Maria,
supra celigenas etheris omnes.
O how glorious, dazzling with light,
stock of David, royal progeny.
You dwell in the highest place, Virgin Mary,
above all heavenly spheres.

The opening stanza of a hymn to Virgin Mary (AR, p. 134*). The text is carefully written under all three voices. Copied by Hand C who notated the ligatures in the lowest voice (Basis) rather carelessly.
