Composer: Thomas Crecquillon
First published: 1564 in Thesaurus Musicus (1564) (attributed to Morales), Volume 1, no. 26
2nd published: 1576 in Phalèse, Opus sacrarum cantionum ... Thomæ Criquillon ... (4–6 & 8vv) [Leuven] (attributed to Crecquillon)
Description: This work is included in Volume 5 of the Opera Omnia by Thomas Crecquillon, to whom it is now confidently attributed: "CMM 063-05, no.1 Andreas Christi famulus - Dilexit Andream" (Published by the American Institute of Musicology; on the website, you cannot find which sources were used.) On the other hand, this work can also be found in Volume 1 of Thesaurus Musicus (1564). The author given in the table of contents is Moralis. RISM (currently) knows no Andreas Christi famulus of Thomas Crecquillon. Under Cristóbal de Morales are listed - in addition to the 5-part version - also manuscripts of an 8-part version: (the two RISM links below), whereby reference is made to the printed version in the Thesaurus musicus from 1564.
The attribution is discussed in detail in Martin Ham's PhD thesis (link below). Ham suggests that the piece was written for a meeting of the Order of the Golden Fleece in 1546.
