Further information

General note Dobbins (n.d.) suggests "The rhetorical quatrain with its reference to « regret » at the end of the second line is typical of several rondeaux set by this composer, perhaps for his patron Marguerite of Austria after the deaths of her husband, Philibert II duke of Savoy in 1504 and of her brother Philippe le beau in 1506."
