This chapter provides information on the creation of the Roman Mass Proper. The Paduensis manuscript represents a papal sacramentary that was brought from the Lateran to St. Peter's sometime before 680 and was adopted there for basilican use. The Hadrianum, the form of sacramentary sent by Pope Hadrian to Charlemagne in the late eighth century, distinguishes itself by a small number of additions to the sanctorale of the Paduensis, changes made between 682 and the close of Sergius I's reign in 701. The feast of St. George appears to have been added during the reign of Leo II (682–83), and the feast of St. Peter in Chains during the reign of Leo's successor, Benedict II (684–85). Responsory-communions most certainly constitute one of the very latest layers of the entire Mass Proper, shared as they are by Office and Mass in an attempt by the Roman singers to complete the annual cycle of responsories and communions in a fitting manner.
