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.
