Further notes: 

WARD 1986, 507-508 proposes the reconstruction of a “virtual” seven-motet cycle combining motets from the present cycle and C37b.

LINDMAYR-BRANDL 1992 and PAVANELLO 2009 have proposed to discard M140 (whose attribution to Gaspar is doubtful) from the cycle on textual and stylistic grounds.

See also information on this cycle as part of the Gaspar van Weerbeke Project.
