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.

Further notes: 

This motet is transmitted as a fragment.

Not a concordance for M096.

This motet has been proposed as part of C37a by WARD 1986, and as such attributed to Weerbeke (see the record of C37a for further information). LINDMAYR-BRANDL 1992 and PAVANELLO 2009 have instead discarded it from the cycle on textual and stylistic grounds.

The Gaspar van Weerbeke Project lists it among the doubtful works.
