Indexing notes: 
The opening incipit of this antiphon goes below the final, so this is a mode 4 antiphon. Based on a comparison with other antiphons within Hildegard's manuscripts that include differentia, antiphons with incipits that go below the final are plagal modes, whilst those that stay above the final are authentic modes. This antiphon also appears in B-DEa 9 with a mode 4 differentia.
