    - p.10 n.4 : 'This Appendix excludes 13 madrigals whose authenticity can be questioned because they are also attributed to other composers, appear in late or suspicious sources, or seem uncharacteristic in style. The madrigals are: 'Quando lieta sperai', 'A che con nuovo laccio', 'Volgend'al ciel', 'Deh horfoss'io', 'Spesso in parte del ciel', 'Chi vol veder tutta', 'Non mi toglia il ben mio', 'A che pi strali', 'Se qual 'l mio dolore', 'Che giova dunque', 'Alme gentili', 'Lieta vivo e contenta', 'S'eguale a la mia voglia'.

    3 : Einstein, Alfred, The Italian Madrigal (vertaald naar het Engels door Alexander H. Krappe, Roger H. Sessions en Oliver Strunk) (Princeton University Press, New Jersey, 1949)
    - p.422 : 'As late as 1591, twenty-five years after Rore's death, the Venetian physician (medico fisico) and poet Orazio Guargante published, together with a canzone by Filippo di Monte, a six-voiced madrigal and a quadripartite canzone, likewise for six voices, by Rore: Lieta vivo e contenta, and S'equal a la mia voglia .. the canzone, as he puts it, del Maestro de' Maestri M. Ciprian Rore, non pi veduta n udita. He does not explain how he obtained possession of the .MSS, and it seems to me probable that he was the victim of a fraud. For the two works, though undoubtedly written in the 'fifties, both in the misura di breve, have few characteristic features: the madrigal is distinguished only by its strongly accented homophonic declamation; the canzone, with its short stanzas (A-B-c-c'-B'-A'), only by an impressive inflection toward A-flat major (F minor) in the final section.
