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 M104-110.

Full text: 

Bone pastor Christe Iesu,
Nos tuere panis esu
Atque bona fac videre
In terra viventium.

Caro cibus, sanguis potus,
Manet tamen Christus totus
Sub utraque specie.

English translation: 

Good shepherd Jesus Christ, protect us through the meal of the bread and make us see the good things in the world of the living.

Flesh becomes food, blood becomes drink, yet, He still remains completely Christ under both respects.
