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.

In signo glorifico,
Tanto tam mirifico
Deservit misterium
Saluti fidelium,
Quo docentur in altari
Dignum suo salutari
Praestare obsequium.

Ave corpus Iesu Christi
Tu de caelo descendisti.

Ave verbum incarnatum
In altari consecratum,
Panis verus angelorum
Custos sis christianorum.
