Description: A Rondeau Transcribed from the Trent manuscript tr92. Five voices written for different 3 or 4 voices performances. The keys, notes' values, colourings and accidentals are as in the manuscript, except that the perfect breves are dotted and a tie is used for a note's value the cannot be exactly represented. The time signature is missing; the "tempus perfectum" is assumed by the context. The notes' values within the "ligaturæ" are as follows: the left upstemmed notes are semibreves - the unstemmed notes are breves - the right downstemmed notes are longæ. The "musica ficta" suggestions are in the MIDI and MusicXML files.

Fortune qui mains cuers abas
et qui mains en as mis abas
par toi je pers toute liesse
et use en langueur ma jonesse
en moi n'a jeux, ris ne soulas.
