- According to Grove Music, 25 of the 37 motets in this collection are from previous editions, but 3 are not by Victoria. Those are by Francisco Guerrero and Francesco Soriano.
- These have been tagged as choral pieces, because the Grove Music article seems to indicate that he was largely dealing with choirs, at one point citing a requirement at one of Victoria's appointments that "the student body sing the entire Office on at least 20 days of the church year" and later, he was maestro at the Monasterio de las Descalzas de S Clara at Madrid; this "comprised 12 priests (three to a part) and four boys". Though this latter reference is after the Motecta Festorum was compiled, the article in general gives the impression of someone working with multiple voices on a part.
