As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- messu-söngs-maðr (messu-sǫngs-maðr)
- m. a reading clerk to chant the mass, D. I. i. 282, 489.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, messu-söngs-maðr may be more accurately written as messu-sǫngs-maðr.
