  • Grove Music lists all six of these under motets.
  • According to Grove Music, Reges Tharsis et insulae and Spiritus Sanctus procedens a throno are "incomplete, but restorable by addition of plainchant". (Presumably the editors have done this already.)
  • Grove Music lists three version of In manus tuas, Domine, one for 3 voices, and two for 4 voices.
  • Grove Music lists two versions of Spiritus Sanctus procedens, one for 5 voices, and one for 6 voices.
