Further notes: 

Elevation motet (2a pars).

The versions in I-Mfd 1 and I-Mfd 2 correspond, but for the text incipit (I-Mfd 2 skips the first line of the Marian antiphon and repeats “Ave domina angelorum” instead).

Additional concordance in a ms. that does not transmit motet cycles: B-Br MS IV.922 (“Occo Codex”), f. 4r (only the section O salutaris hostia). In B-Br MS IV.922 there are only four fermatas in C and T and three fermatas in S and B (http://depot.lias.be/delivery/DeliveryManagerServlet?dps_pid=IE7950914). According to DIERGARTEN 2017, 82-83, "it suggests that the presence or absence of fermatas in note-against-note settings is a question of notational preference, unstable in the transmission process, and not a question of style". At m. 55 (CMM 106.3, p. 11) the Contratenor is different in the three sources (I-Mfd 1, I-Mfd 2 and B-Br MS IV.922).
