Discography: 
Further notes: 

WARD 1986, 507-508 proposes the reconstruction of a “virtual” seven-motet cycle combining motets from the present cycle and C37b.

LINDMAYR-BRANDL 1992 and PAVANELLO 2009 have proposed to discard M140 (whose attribution to Gaspar is doubtful) from the cycle on textual and stylistic grounds.

Further notes: 

This motet is transmitted as a fragment.

Not a concordance for M096.

This motet has been proposed as part of C37a by WARD 1986, and as such attributed to Weerbeke (see the record of C37a for further information). LINDMAYR-BRANDL 1992 and PAVANELLO 2009 have instead discarded it from the cycle on textual and stylistic grounds.

The Gaspar van Weerbeke Project lists it among the doubtful works.
