Je le lairray puisqu’il my bat,
Depuis deulx ou trois moys en ça,
I shall leave him, because he beats me,
In the last two or three months
Entered by Hand C. An arrangement of a popular tune for three low voices by the French composer Antoine de Fevin (c. 1470-1511/12, for a list of sources, see Brown 1983b, p. 206, ed.: Brown 1963c, pp. 106-108). Much of the fun of this song is the discrepancy between the female voice of the poem and the sound of the virtuoso setting for male voices.
All three voices are carefully underlaid with text, in some instances with more text than it seems possible to sing (see the edition). The second stanza is preserved in the monophonic chansonnier Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale, ms. f.fr. 9356, f. 67v (ed. Gérold 1921, no. 66).
