Title: O bone Jesu
Composer: Pierre de Manchicourt
Description: Although inscribed in the 1554 source with the header incertus autor, this motet appears in a later collection — Monasterio de S Maria, Montserrat, MS 772 (‘Líber quatuor missarum musicalium…a Petro de Manchicourt…’)  — enabling confident attribution to Pierre de Manchicourt.
Original text and translations
(The text appears as one long sentence in the source, without punctuation or capital letters except for ‘Iesu’, so the text division is editorial; the third and fourth sentences are apparently quoted from a prayer for mercy written by St Augustine.)
O bone Iesu, salvator mundi, miserere nobis.
Gentle Jesus, saviour of the world, have mercy on us.
