Description: 

The cycle belongs to the “core” group of motetti missales, even though it is copied in a non-Milanese source. It consists of six motets (the fifth subdivided into three partes), the last three of which provided with “loco” rubrics. All the texts derive from the same Marian sequence, except for two brief interpolations in the last two motets.

Further notes: 

The part of the motet starting with “Domine Iesu propitius esto” is considered as an independent piece in Noblitt’s edition. There is, however, no sign in the manuscript supporting this subdivision.
