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.

O inaestimabile
Signum memorabile 
Saeculorum saeculis.

O Iesu dulcissime,
O panis suavissime,
Ure nos divinitus
Igne sancti spiritus.
