GASSER 2001, 304-305, considers the cycle to consist of seven motets, instead of eight: see the notes to M075 and M076.

The version of M074 in I-Mfd 3 is longer than the one in I-Mfd 1.

Further notes: 

Cycle C14a, whose three component motets (M071, M072 and M074) are concordant with motets in C14b, is attributed to "Loyset" in I-Mfd 1, index (see the record for fuller details). The present motet has been unanimously attributed to Compère as part of C14b: see for instance FINSCHER 1964, 92.

At the end of the bass part there is a "verte folium" rubric pointing to the next motet (M076); moreover, the present motet ends with breves, whereas all the other motets in the cycle end with longae: GASSER 2001, 310 therefore considers M075 and M076 as one motet for the Sanctus-ad elevationem-post elevationem complex.
