Further notes: 

This motet is transmitted as a fragment.

Individual elevation motet. Considered as part of a seven-motet cycle Diem novae gratiae (I-Mfd [4], ff. 70v-77r) by WARD 1986, 499 and 505 and GASSER 2001, 233 and 332. This hypothesis does not hold, as all seven motets include an elevation section (PAVANELLO 2017). See also M105-110.

Decantemus hodie,

In qua signum floruit,
Quo fides refloruit

Let us sing today with a chant of happiness the day of new grace, a day in which a sign blossomed, and through this sign faith blossomed anew and it shone, as it is clear.
