This manuscript was only recently (partially) recovered from scattered fragments. The music apparently dates from around 1290, and was definitely bound together at the Worcester Cathedral at some point. The works performed here are complete (not "fragments"), although not all of the pieces of the original manuscript have been recovered.
There are several interesting polyphonic ideas here which aren't found in other sources, including some embryonic isorhythms in a few tracks.
