Uppsala 76a, no. 36, ff. 32v-33 »Mon cueur est tant bien assis« 3v
Antoine Riche [Divitis] (unicum)

Mon cueur est tant bien assis,
Dieu m’en doint joye,
aultre chose ne pourroye
pour mielx faire a mon plaisir.
M’amye m’a faict tout mon desir.

My heart feels so good
– may God let me enjoy it –
nothing else could I do
to give me more pleasure:
My girl has fulfilled all my longing.

Entered by Hand C. A three-part arrangement for low voices of a popular tune, which is found in the monophonic chansonnier Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale, Ms. nouv. acq. fr. 9346 (Bayeux MS), ff. 34v-35 (no. 34). In Paris 9346 the tune is combined with a poem in virelai-form, which differs from the poem in Uppsala 76a after the second line.

The correct reading of the composer’s name and its identification was revealed by Joshua Rifkin in his article ‘Taking from the Rich. A Mistaken Attribution in Uppsala 76a’ (Rifkin 2010). Divitis or Antoine Le Riche (c. 1470-c. 1530) is primarily known for his sacred music. This is the only composition of this type ascribed to him, a somewhat heavy-handed exercise in the style of Fevin.
