This piece has a number of concordances with varying ascriptions:

  • Florence Banco Rari 229 (Johannes Martini)
  • Bologna MS Q.16 (under title "Dieu damors") (anonymous)
  • Bologna MS Q.18 (anonymous)
  • Lieder RISM 1535\sup{14} (anonymous)
  • Odhecaton A (Johannes Ockeghem)
  • Casanatense MS 2856 (Malcourt, which may be either Abertijne Malcourt or Henrick Malecourt)
  • Vatican Capp. Giul. XIII.27 (Johannes Martini)
  • St. Gall 461 (Johannes Ockeghem)

This melody was also used in parody masses by Agricola, Josquin, and Obrecht.

David Fallows believes the Ockeghem attribution is very unlikely, noting the earliest attribution is Malcourt, while it is very much in the style of Martini.
