Description: Lynn Halpern Ward (The "Motetti Missales" Repertory Reconsidered, Journal of the American Musicological Society, Vol. 39, No. 3 - Autumn 1986) has suggested that this piece may be part of a motetti musicali cycle: a Milanese practice of substituting the movements of a mass with motets. In its source, Librone 1, it is grouped with other motets from this conjectural cycle: it appears between Ave virgo gloriosa and O admirabile commercium. Whether or not all the components of Ward's proposed cycle were ever performed as a unit, it seems likely that they were used in the groupings in which they appear in the Libroni.
