The "Da pacem" antiphon was used for several polyphonic settings around 1500, including ones by Heinrich Isaac (a 4), Ludwig Senfl (a 4), Adrian Willaert (a 4), Claudin de Sermisy (fl 3), Johannes Prioris (fl 6), Alexander Agricola (a 3 -see EML 311). The simplicity of the melody, in particular its predominantly stepwise movement, makes it particularly suitable for imitation or even canon at the 4th or 5th, and some of the settings printed here exploit this, in particular the double canon by Antoine Brumel.
