Quatre Motets sur des thèmes grégoriens (Four motets on Gregorian themes), Op. 10, are four sacred motets composed by Maurice Duruflé in 1960, based on Gregorian themes.

He set Latin liturgical texts, scored for unaccompanied voices, and dedicated the work to organist Auguste Le Guennant. The motets were published the same years by Éditions Durand.

The first performance was on 4 May 1961 at Saint-Merri in Paris by the Chorale Stéphane Caillat.
Five American Folksongs (Yankee Doodle, Shenandoah, Shortnin' bread/Pick a bale o'cotton, The streets of Laredo, Frog went a-courtin') have been imaginatively arranged for SATB choir by Daryl Runswick
