|Notes||Text and neume scribe as for Ante saecula et mundi, Gratuletur omnis and Adam in saeculo on the same folio (fol. 207r/v): for a brief description, see the entry for Ante saecula et mundi. Fewer significative letters were used for this text than for the melodically concordant Gratuletur omnis that precedes Alma vera on fol. 207r. The textual correction from et to ac in the first line of Alma vera has not been signaled in transcription in order to preserve the spacing of the neumes.
The neumes for Gratuletur omnis and Alma vera in the Naples manuscript are virtually identical, albeit that more significative letters and signs of lengthening were added to Gratuletur. One point of substantial difference occurs at the ninth and tenth syllables in the first line, where the notation for Alma vera indicates pes-virga (2a-1a) instead of the virga-pes combination used at this point in Gratuletur and in both notations at the repeat in line three. This departure may be due to the monosyllablic opening to the half-line in Alma vera.
Proximity to the other melodies for Gratuletur given in the book entry rests both on the similar overall melodic structure (A, B, A'), and on the similar melodic profile for the first halves of both the A lines. A similar melodic contour may also be traced for the first half of the B lines, although the neumed versions are noticeably more ornate at this point.

|Melody||The neumes for the first and third lines are similar, although significant differences occur towards the end of the line. The overall melodic pattern may thus be summarized as: A, B, A'. The only indications of lengthening occur at the seventh and final syllable of line two.|
