This recording presents selection for the Puy Manuscript, compiled at the end of the 16th century. Despite its late date, it is believed to contain works performed since the 12th century; indeed, the greater detail of notation at this late date is thought to provide some insight into the performance of older repertory.

The "tracks" given above are actually sectional divisions.
