Songs and canticles from ancient times spread across two pages of an open book. The text includes the 100th Psalm also known as the Jubilate Deo. It is used in the Anglican liturgy of Morning Prayer, but more comonly known as the Thanksgiving Psalm. Several panels of gold leaf stretch across the open book and the 100th Psalm has been inscribed onto the panels in a handwritten script.
