Discography: 

Josquin des Pres: Missa Pange lingua, Vultum tuum, Planxit autem David. Wenstminster Cathedral Choir, James O'Donnell, Hyperion CDA 66614, 1992 (cycle extended and reorganised following Macey's suggestions).

Further notes: 

Compare the shorter cognate cycles C53b Ora pro nobis virgo and C53c Sancta dei genitrix.

MACEY 1989 proposed an extended and partially reordered cycle, including Josquin’s “little” Ave Maria and his Tu lumen, tu splendor patris. Elders discusses the hypothesis in the critical notes to the edition of the work in NJE (CC) 25.

Further notes: 

M264, M265 and M268 have further concordances in F-PN Cons. Rés. F. 41 (for the foliation, see the records of the individual motets). Because of its particular nature, this source (in which the motets are inserted as handwritten additions between printed masses by Carpentras) is not listed among the Other sources of the present cycle (see http://www.diamm.ac.uk/sources/2375/#/).
