According to Grove Music, "The song settings T’meiskin was jonck and Een vrolic wesen were mistakenly ascribed to Isaac, apparently because he wrote masses based on them". However, this reference must be to the 3-voice version, because in Grove's work list, there are two versions -- the 4-voice version seems to be definitely by Isaac, but the 3-voice version is attributed to Jacobus Barbireau.
