Valenciennes 114 contains several Offices that are not found in CAO, in other sources indexed by CANTUS to date, nor have they been edited in Analecta hymnica: these include Offices for Amandus and Cyricus (as well as seperate Offices for the Octaves of their feasts), and Ursula and the Eleven Thousand Virgins. The Office for Catherine has been edited in Analecta hymnica vol. 26, pp. 197-204.

Differentiae are numbered arbitrarily; all chants not found in CAO are assigned an arbitrary number, prefixed by "sam".
