- Grove Music cites two versions of this work.
- Grove Music mentions this work in a passage where it says that Japart had "a tendency to use ingenious puzzle canons when taking over pre-existing material; thus in one of his two settings of J’ay pris amours the pre-existing melody carries the inscription ‘Fit aries piscis in licanos ypathon’, indicating that the melody (in the superius) is to be transposed down a 12th and sung in retrograde motion, resulting in its sounding as the lowest voice."
