Old English text of Bede's Death Song is part of Cuthbert's letter De obitu Bedæ, which follows a copy of the Historia ecclesiastica. OE is in the same hand as the main text. Ker notes that 'the Waltham Abbey ex-libris inscription [...] is contemporary with the text' (1957, p. 383).
Manuscript described by Mary Swan and Owen Roberson with the assistance of Sanne van der Schee, with reference to published scholarship (2010; 2012).
