Misc. Comments

Though there are a few pieces in the Odhecaton that may have been instrumental in origin, Grove Music classifies this as a chanson, and although only the incipit is given in the Odhecaton Canti B, the text would have either been known to the people of the time, or available elsewhere. Accordingly, this has been tagged for chansons as per Grove.
