Further notes: 

WARD 1986 listed the first two motets of this cycle (cited only by their foliation, ff. 64v-66r) among the “possibile motetti missales cycles in the Gafurius codices” (p. 523, footnote 56). GASSER 2001 was the first to propose a larger, three-motet cycle. As the same author admits, however, the third motet has a different tonal type (p. 347). While this “may seem to throw out the possibility of a unified, tri-partite cycle”, Gasser observes that all three motets “share the same hexachordal identity of cantus mollis” and feature “similar musical techniques and a consistent approach to composition, including some potential thematic connections” (ibid.).
