Date of composition Late tenth century
Language Latin


*@Lapidge 1993, p. 379, concludes: '[B]oth MCY [= Metrical Calendar of York] and MCH [= Metrical Calendar of Hampson] were laid under contribution by the poet of MCR.... Most importantly, the discovery of MCR provides us for the first time with an example of poetic composition from late tenth-century Ramsey--a monastic centre which, as recent studies are beginning to show, was the focal point of considerable intellectual activity at that time.'
