See also the cognate cycle C13c.

AMMM 11 and the facsimile edn. of I-Mfd 2 propose a five-motet cycle comprising M039, M043, M044, M035, and M036; the corresponding rubric reported in AMMM 11, iii as present in the manuscript index derives, on the contrary, from an editorial annotation in SARTORI 1957, 48.

Further notes: 

Elevation motet (2a pars).

“Verte folium” (I-Mfd 1) or “verte folium” and “custodes” (I-Mfd 2) to next motet (O Maria clausus hortus); consequently GASSER 2001, 285-286 considers them as one long motet consisting of three partes.
