The original clefs were C1, C3, C4, F3, F4. There is no attribution, not even 'incertus autor'. Other antiphons in the set are by Manchicourt, Mornable, Hotinet, Certon and Leroy.

O sapientia quae ex ore altissimi prodisti attingens a fine usque ad finem fortiter suaviter disponensque omnia:
Veni ad docendum nos viam prudentie.
