Physical description: 

For a description and music incipits, see also Printed Sacred Music Database: http://www.printed-sacred-music.org/manuscripts/00000000002303. The list of works, though, does not follow the order in which they appear in the partbooks. See also RISM.

For a digital reproduction of the complete set (S,A,T,B) at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (D-Mbs 4 Mus.pr. 0106) see the following link: https://stimmbuecher.digitale-sammlungen.de/view?id=bsb00079624. The present inventory follows the order in which the motets appear in S, A, T; in the B partbook, the works 9 to 13 appear in the following order: 10-9-12-13-11. We have used this exemplar (D-Mbs 4 Mus.pr. 0106) for the music incipits of the S.

Remarks about MS/Print: 

As pointed out in RISM, the standardized title follows the title in the cantus partbook: Cantus | MORALIS HISPANI, ET MVLTORVM | EXIMIAE ARTIS VIRORVM/ MVSICA CVM VO-|CIBVS QVATVOR VVLGO MOTECTA | COGNOMINATA: | Cuius magna pars paribus vocibus cantanda est: reliqua verò plena voce | apta est decantari. hactenus non typijs excussa, | nunc autem in lucem prodit. 

However, the other three partbooks (A, T, B,) have a slightly different title: MORALIS HISPANI, ET RELIQUORVM, | MVSICA VOCVM QVATVOR, CVIVS PARS EST | AEQVALI VOCE/ RELIQVA IMPARI | DECANTANDA. MODO IN | LVCEM EMISSA. Thus, in the online Bologna catalogue, the title in the extant exemplar of the Bassus partbook appears as "Moralis Hispani, et reliquorum".

Comments: 

The four partbooks have no ascriptions in the music; we have used "Moralis Hispani" as ascription for all the motets in this printed book, following the title-page, even though it mentions that the publication includes works by other composers without indicating which ones. In this way, we think, it will be more visible the conflicts of authorship of some pieces with other sources that have a clear ascription to other composers, to whom they should be given a preference. Thus, in the absence of conflicting attribution, it will be possible to suggest Morales authorship of a piece.  

Among online reference tools, there is a discrepancy in the attribution of the motets in this printed book. The Bayerische Staatsbibliothek online catalog lists as composers: Ihan Gero, Nicolas Gombert, Jachet of Mantua, Cristóbal de Morales, and Philippe Verdelot, without identification of the works attributed to these composers; Printed Sacred Music Database: Anon., Ihan Gero, and Morales; RISM: Anon., Bartolomé de Escobedo, Jan Gero, Jachet of Mantua, Jacotin, Maistre Jhan, and Cristóbal de Morales. We follow the Morales "Worklist" by Martin Ham (2007) and, in particular, the specific "Table 13.1 Motets in the 'Morales' anthologies, 1543/5 and 1546/9" in Ham, "Morales: The Canon" (2007), pp. 265-266, which lists the conflicting attributions and their sources regarding the two Morales printed books1543/5 (with 25 motets) and 1546/9 (with 20 motets). However, for the present inventory, the conflicting attributions to Gombert and Verdelot mentioned in the D-Mbs online catalog of 1543/5 have not yet been identified.
