The appendices reproduce Banaster's poem, "Miraculum sancti Thome martyris," which was written in English and a list of the corrodies granted by the Crown to Banaster.

Title : Early 15th-Century Polyphonic Settings of Song of Songs Antiphons [The popularity of the Song of Songs in the Middle Ages has ties both to the cult of the Virgin Mary and to courtly love. The bodily imagery of the text could be applied to a spiritual or a carnal beloved. Dialogues between loved and beloved promoted the composition of duet passages in motets on the Song of Songs.
