  • Published in 1554 in Cinqiesme Liure de Guiterre, contenant Plusieurs Chansons à Trois & quatre parties, par bons & excelens Musiciens: Reduites en Tabulature par A. le Roy but it is unknown whether this is the first publication.
  • Also published in Tiers livre de chansons, nouvellement mises en musique..., Paris, Le Roy et Ballard, 1554
  • Despite being published in a book of chansons, it is in Italian, and one could argue it is more appropriately a madrigal; in fact, that is how Grove Music classifies it.
