Old Hall Manuscript

   Containing 147 sacred works (40 Glorias, 35 Credos, 27 Sanctus, 19 Agnus Dei, 11 motets, and 15 discants) composed between 1370 and 1420, all but two by English composers, it is the earliest large source with named attributions in the Western tradition, with Lionel Power having the most. The complete absence of Kyrie movements remains a puzzle.
