{22}
December 8: Conception of Blessed Mary
Frere (Graduale Sarisburiense, xxix.) places the general establishment of this Feast in the 11th century. This would align with the re-invigoration of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin at Chartres in the same era. See Margot Fassler, ‘Mary’s Nativity, Fulbert of Chartres, and the Stirps Jesse: Liturgical Innovation circa 1000 and Its Afterlife’ Speculum LXXV (2000):389-434.
However, this Feast does not appear in the ‘Old Ordinal’ (The Use of Sarum II:106; 177), nor in the Arsenal or Bologna sources of The Sarum Missal Edited from Three Early Manuscripts: 235.  It appears in Rylands-24:370 only as an addition to the title of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin.  In the Kalendar of The Sarum Missal (xxxii), the entry indicates ‘Conceptio sancte marie.  ix. lec.  Sarum nichil.’  Presumably the introduction of this Feast as a separate entity in the Sarum books coincided with the broader dissemination made possible through printing in the late 15th. century.
The texts, with the exception of the Sequence, are taken from the Feast of the Nativity of Blessed Mary, September 8.
The York Use borrows the same texts from the Nativity, including also the Sequence, ‘Alle celeste’.
The Roman Missals generally have different texts, presumably reflecting the initiatives of Popes Sixtus IV, Pius V, and Pius IX.
The Dominican Missal (Venice: Herzog, 1494) omits this Feast entirely, perhaps due to the teachings of Thomas Aquinas, himself a Dominican.

Officium. Gaudeamus omnes in Domino

{23}
Prayer. Supplicationem servorum tuorum.
Most Roman Missals have ‘Deus qui per immaculatam Virginis’.
The Roman Missal (1744) has ‘Famulis tuis quesumus Domine’.

Alleluya. Conceptio gloriose virginis

{24}
Sequence. Dies iste celebretur
This Sequence replaced the earlier sequence ‘Alle celeste’, which was borrowed from the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin.
According to AH-54180. The three stanzas beginning ‘Quod’, ‘Triste’ and ‘Omnis’ appear to be a later addition to the text.  This is borne out by the variation in length of line here.
While the sequence is in the Victorine style, its layout of verses does not perfectly match any of the other Victorine sequences of the Sarum repertoire; no musical setting has been found thus far.
Tr. Athanasius Diedrich Wakerbarth, Lyra Ecclesiastica II (London: J. Bohn, 1843): 29.

{25}
Secret. Unigeniti tui Domine
The Roman Missal (1500 and 1543) has ‘Suscipe digneris per temetipsum’.
The Roman Missal (1744) has ‘Unigeniti tui Domine’.
The Liber Usualis and modern Roman Missal have ‘Salutarem hostiam’.

{26}
Postcommunion. Sumpsimus Domine celebritatis
The Roman Missal (1500 and 1543) has ‘Odorem Domine sacrificii hujus’.
The Roman Missal (1744) has ‘Sumpsimus Domine celebritatis’.
The Liber Usualis and modern Roman Missal have ‘Sacramenta quae sumpsimus’.

The Gospel is taken from the Common of One Confessor

{117}
March 17: St. Patrick, bishop and confessor

The fact that St. Patrick’s Mass appears out of order in most of the printed missals is a good indication that it was a later addition.  It may have been added in order to make the Sarum Rite more suitable for the Irish Church.   Hugh Jackson Lawlor ed., The Rosslyn Missal (London: Harrison and Sons, 1899): 153 ff.

August 6: The Transfiguration
As a late medieval feast (1457), this feast borrows its propers from elsewhere in the Gradual, mainly Christmas.  In the Roman Rite the selection of chants is completely different (see LU: 1585 for details).  Again, in the Dominican Rite only the Offertory is the same as in the Roman order.

Officium. Veni et ostende (Saturday in the Ember Days of Advent)

Officium. In excelso throno (Sunday after Octave of Epiphany.)

This is only instance of which I am aware in which  the Sarum sources provide different selections, the former in the Missal, the latter in the Gradual.

See Richard Pfaff, ‘The Feast of the Name of Jesus’, New Liturgical Feasts in Later Medieval England (London: Oxford University Press, 1970).

‘The Office and Mass composed by Bernardine dei Busti (d. 1500) were approved by Sixtus IV.’, (Holweck, Frederick. “Feast of the Holy Name.” The Catholic Encyclopedia. VII. New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1910. 8 Aug. 2017 <http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07420a.htm>).

New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1910. 8 Aug. 2017 <http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07420a.htm>).  Richard Pfaff, however, notes that this sequence is English in origin:  New Liturgical Feasts in Later Medieval England (Oxford, 1970):67-68.

{349}
Divisio. Jesus pulcher in decore

{352}
Sequence. Dulcis Jesu memoria
Attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux, this is a portion of the hymn, ‘Jesu dulcis memoria’, and known as the Rosy Sequence.  It comprises the first 7 and last 2 of the 42 stanzas of the complete poem.  The same poem is the basis of the hymn, Jesu dulcis memoria for this day (Brev.:{1055}, both of which share the first five stanzas–in slightly different versions.
This sequence is actually formed of Ambrosian stanzas, 8 8 8 8.
(See also F. Brittain, Mediaeval Latin and Romance Lyric to A. D. 1300 (Cambridge: at the University Press, 1951):109.)

This Officium is in hexameters.

{379}
Gradual. Benedicta et venerabilis

{380}
Alleluya. Post partum virgo

(381)
Offertory. Felix namque

{382}
Offertory Verse. Beata es virgo Maria.

Frere lists an Offertory, Beata es, Mode VIII, for the B. V. M. apparently contained in Bodleian Rawl. Liturg. d 3, an early 13th c. Gradual.  (Frere, Graduales Sarisburiense:lxxxiv.).  This is most likely the same as this Offertory Verse.

It should be noted that the Offertory g00277, which appears in only one source in CANTUS, P-Ln Iluminado 084 is likely the same chant as the Offertory Verse g01421a, which appears in two CANTUS sources, E-Sau Ms 2637:209v. and CH-P 28:329.   In fact g00277 is identified as ‘similar’ to g01421a in CANTUS.

{383}
Communion. Alma Dei genitrix

{384}
August 15: Assumption of Blessed Mary

The image is of the death of the Virgin Mary with eleven apostles gathered around her bed. According to The Golden Legend, the one holding the palm branch would be John. Paul would be present among the apostles. Peter would presumably be the one in the centre holding the book. He appears to be sprinkling Mary with water; thus the image appears to reflect to some extent the medieval practice of the ‘last rites’. It appears that according to some traditions Thomas was not present, and that Paul was present rather than Mathias. There appears to be a candlestick in the upper left; women are observing from the doorway in the upper right.
