The mass has been passed down, in full or in part, in sixteen sources: seven prints and nine manuscripts. The most important sources are the Liber primus missarum Josquin (Ottaviano Petrucci, Venice, 1502); F-CA Ms. 18 (20), fol. 82v-97r (Le Labo (previously Médiathèque d’agglomération de Cambrai, and Bibliothèque Municipale/Bibliothèque Communale), Cambrai) and D-Ju Ms. 32, fol. 200v-219r (Universitätsbibliothek, Jena). The numbering in New Josquin Edition is 4.2.

The cantus firmus of the Missa Gaudeamus is based on the Gregorian introit Gaudeamus omnes. The mass is in four parts.
