Further notes: 

All movements have concordances elsewhere in the Libroni (for the Sanctus, see I-Mfd 2, ff. 35v-36r); therefore, it is possible to access the full score of the cycle in spite of the damaged state of the reference source (notice, however, the reworkings pointed out by WARD 1986, 512-515, and see the  further notes to M103).

WARD 1986, 506, 508-515 proposes and discusses the reconstruction of a “virtual” five-movement cycle including two additional motets from I-Mfd 1, ff. 149v-151r.

The shorter cycle C14a, whose three component motets (M071, M072 and M074) are concordant with motets in the present cycle, is attributed to "Loyset" in I-Mfd 1, index (see the record for fuller details). Therefore, the present motet has been unanimously attributed to Compère as part of C14b: see for instance FINSCHER 1964, 92.

Further notes: 

The version of I-Mfd 1 is shorter than the one in I-Mfd 3 (the section starting with "Gaude virgo fruens delitiis" is missing).
The motet is presented on two openings in the sources, connected by "custodes" and by the rubric "verte cito": in I-Mfd 1 the second opening starts with "Gaude mundi domina", in I-Mfd 3 with "Gaude virgo fruens delitiis".

Further notes: 

Cycle C14a, whose three component motets (M071, M072 and M074) are concordant with motets in C14b, is attributed to "Loyset" in I-Mfd 1, index (see the record for fuller details). The present motet has been unanimously attributed to Compère as part of C14b: see for instance FINSCHER 1964, 92.

At the end of the bass part there is a "verte folium" rubric pointing to the next motet (M076); moreover, the present motet ends with breves, whereas all the other motets in the cycle end with longae: GASSER 2001, 310 therefore considers M075 and M076 as one motet for the Sanctus-ad elevationem-post elevationem complex.

The concordance in I-Mfd 1 is not part of a cycle, but it does contain the ascription.

The transcription in AMMM 13 contains an error in the last chord; it gives a d instead of a g in the contratenor bassus.

WARD 1986 considers this a concordance for Compère’s O genetrix gloriosa (WARD 1986, 499, 506; edited in CMM 15.4 after MotettiA, ff. 4v-6r, but contained incompletely in three Libroni: I-Mfd 1, ff. 149v-150r, 2nd part; I-Mfd 2, ff. 36v-37r, 2nd part; and I-Mfd 3, ff. 51v-52r, 1st part). This piece is however not a real concordance for O genitrix gloriosa, but rather a cognate setting of a partially concordant text, with substantial musical similarities.
