Yesterday I re-tumbled a heart shaped Book of Hours that I thought was the same as the lovely facsimile we have in the music library, but in fact it is a facsimile of a totally different beautiful heart shaped manuscript book from France.  I like that it came with a CD with recordings of all the songs!
