- Possibly, even probably, spurious. (See e.g. AMG link.)
- According to Grove Music, "Busnoys' authorship of Fortuna has recently been challenged by Joshua Rifkin on stylistic grounds and reattributed to one ‘Ser Felice’ [di Giovanni Martini] of Florence."
- If it is indeed by Busnois, it was most probably not originally intended to be instrumental, since all of the works listed by Grove Music are specifically vocal.
