The arrangement of chant texts and prayers to be said by the priest in successive groups makes the Echternach Sacramentary and Antiphonary a forerunner of the Roman missal. In each formulary the notated chants are set down one after the other, followed by the orations. The chants with their neumatic notation are written in small script between the carefully executed letters. The rich ornamentation of both the script and the pictures gives this manuscript an extraordinary artistic value.
