Which of the flowing most logically completes the argument?

The attribution of the choral work Lacrimae to the composer Pescard (1400 – 1474) has been regarded as tentative, since it was based on a single treatise from the early 1500’s that named Pescard as the composer. Recently, several musical treatises from the late 1500’s have come to light, all of which name Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae.
Unfortunately, these newly discovered treatises lend no support to the attribution of Lacrimae to Pescard, since _______.

A. the treatise from the early 1500’s misidentifies the composers of some of the musical works it considers
B. the author of the treatise from the early 1500’s had no very strong evidence on which to base the identification of Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae
C. there are works that can conclusively be attributed to Pescard that are not even mentioned in the treatise from the early 1500’s
D. the later treatises probably had no source for their attribution other than the earlier treatise
E. no known treatises from the 1600’s identify Pescard as the composer of Lacrimae

1400-1474: Pescard composer to Lacrimae based on single treaty

i narrowed down to A or D. i think D is stronger

D - If the later treaties' only had the single early treaties as a source, then the additional treaties dont lend support to the attribution of the work.

I would go with D.

D. the later treatises probably had no source for their attribution other than the earlier treatise
if several musical treatises from the late 1500’s probably had no source for their attribution other than the single treatise from the early 1500’s then they are not adding any more light

D correctly addresses the flaw that the only reason the new treatise identified him was that the old one said so.

So if the old one was flawed, no reason for the new one to be true

D b/c it dismiss the new evidence saying that it is based on the old evidence, which was not sufficent enought.

I say D. This one is posted on the forums somewhere.

D is the best because it explains that the treatises had no source other than the earlier treatise which is already weak.

A: This maybe a contendor. But this is about the early treatise, we already know this one is weak. No help here.
B: This doesn't provide any link with the treatises just found.
C: So? doesn't link the new treatises at all. This is irrelevant.
E: This is irrelevant, we are dealing with early and late 1500's. Maybe the treatises of the 1600's didn't identify any composers of the previous century. This needs more info to be a valid choice.
