I changed / corrected / the title of this song. it read I vuons beau ieu.. Now it is Jouuons beau jeu added text, because in the score also the transcription has many failures --Wursten 11:58, 29 December 2005 (PST)

Could Stenberg be supplying the text in some form of Old French actually used by the composer? Unfortunately, I can't get to the original Clemens non Papa source to check this out. ChuckGiffen ll:10 CST 30 December 2005

It s old French. I supplied the text from a facsimile. Sternberg made transcriptionfailures probably because he doesnot read old French The same goes BTW for his Souterliedekens transcriptions, where he shows not to be able to read Old Dutch... which is of course is no shame, There are very few people who can. Quite an obscure language nowadays. I'm grateful to Sternberg for the music ! --Wursten 09:54, 30 December 2005 (PST)
