E. Rodríguez-García

Because of its style, position among other motets by Francisco de Peñalosa in E-TZ 2/3, and later attributions in inventories of Tarazona Cathedral, the piece has been sometimes attributed to Peñalosa. However, the attribution pattern of the manuscript seems to suggest otherwise.
