Musical settings at CPDL

The Missa Da pacem attributed to Josquin uses the chant as a cantus firmus, as does Pierre de Manchicourt's Sustinuimus pacem (SAATTB using the 1st phrase only in quintus). Firminus Caron's contrafactum Da pacem Domine-Accoeuille m’a la belle uses a very loosely related text.
