Physical description: 

Justo Sevillano (1961, pp. 149-150) annotated the following: "Siglo XVI, papel, 540 x 400 mm; caja máx., 510 x 350; caja mín., 320 x 330; 126 ff., 11 pautados. LIBRO DE MISAS, MOTETES, ANTÍFONAS, MAGNIFICAT Y LAMENTACIONES [p. 149; and after the inventory, on p. 150:] Manuscrito copiado de una misma mano en la mitad del siglo XVI. Faltan las doce primeras hojas y las quince finales. La numeración original va del folio 13 a 138. Foliación moderna en lápiz, margen inferior. Ff. 18v-19 en blanco. En buen estado de conservación, y está encuadernado con tapas de piel armadas de cartón". He also added the following footnote: "H. Anglés, La Música en la Corte de los Reyes Católicos, I (1941, 2ª ed. 1960), págs. 122 ss., fue el primero que habló del Archivo Musical de Tarazona y describió los números 2, 3 y 5, que contienen el repertorio más antiguo con la música sagrada generalmente de la época de los Reyes Católicos. Este catálogo ha sido redactado según las normas seguidas en Capellae Sixtinae Codices musicis notis instructi siue manu scripti siue praelo excussi ("Studi e Testi", 202 [Città del Vaticano: Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, 1960]), que confeccionó el Rdo. D. José Mª Llorens, a quien agradecemos su estimable ayuda y orientación".

Sevillano's inventory of 25 works (with incorrect folio numbers for the last five pieces) has only three attributions: the three works ascribed to Morales in the manuscript. The 1984 inventory and description in Mosquera, Ruiz Izquierdo, Sevillano (1984, pp. 109-110) follow Sevillano (1961), including the incorrect folio numbers of the last five pieces, and without the footnote about Anglés, adding the attributions to "Fco. Silos" (2) and "Jº Arnalde" (5); at the end of the description: "Rastaurado" [sic] [restored]. That restoration must refer to another restoration (before the last one in 1999; see below) that did not include the covers, since Sevillano's description maintains the old cover: "...está encuadernado con tapas de piel armadas de cartón".

For another description (prior to the 1999 restoration of the manuscript), see also DIAMM.

The restored manuscript, consulted by Ros-Fábregas in October of 2014, has a brand new, dark brown cover with a surface design imitating mudejar style of old covers, but it is made of a hard, artificial (plastic-like/polyurethane?) material, measuring 550 x 415; folios measure approximately 534 x 395 (fol. 6). For the present inventory we have used the modern, pencil foliation in the lower right corner of each folio, running (without errors) from 1 to 128; there are two modern flyleaves one at the beginning of the volume, before fol. 1, and the other at the end, after fol. 128. The last piece in Sevillano's inventory (fols. 123v-126, an incomplete Magnificat starting with a fragmentary three-voice Fecit potentiam) corresponds in fact to fols. 125v-127r (damaged folios), and continues with [Deposuit] potentes (fols. 127v-128r) and [Suscepit] Israel (128v), all very damaged. 

The 1984 inventory and description are found in one page attached to the inner (new) cover of the manuscript. Below that page, another typewritten, smaller note also attached to the inner cover reads: "CÓDICE POLIFÓNICO MANUSCRITO DEL SIGLO / XVI. Nº.1 / VARIOS AUTORES / PAPEL / CATEDRAL DE TARAZONA / RESTAURADO POR ALEJANDRO STAMOGLOV / MINISTERIO DE CULTURA. MADRID, 1999 [and added by hand in blue ink] Informe completo en Caja nº 728". A previous, irregular foliation starting with "13" ending with "135" appears in the upper right corner of most folios. The "two additional fragmentary folios from same manuscript now glued inside front and back covers as endpapers; both contain Magnificat fragments", described in the Census-Catalogue (see DIAMM), are now missing. The duplication of modern folios "103" and "116" (also mentioned in the Census-Catalogue) has been corrected; thus the pencil foliation runs 1-128.

There are three paper watermarks in E-TZ 01; see the images below (published here for the first time): 1) Grapes (fol. 6); 2) Letters IN below a small circle with ornament on top (fol. 55v); and 3) Letters BRP (fol. 87r). E-TZ 01 seems to be the work of one single scribe during the second half of the 16thc.
