Description: 

The cycle belongs to the “core” group of motetti missales. It consists of four motets, but as all of them comprise two or three partes, the overall length and structure are comparable to those of motetti missales cycles consisting of eight motets. All the texts derive from two Marian sequences, except for two brief litanic interpolations in the last motet. 

Modern editions: 
AMMM 5, 75-104

Further notes: 

All the component motets are in more than one pars. Second/third partes are not listed in I-Mfd 1, index (except for the 3a pars of Imperatrix gloriosa), do not have separate attributions, and are linked with “verte folium” and/or “custodes”.
