Commentary

One of thw works in Libro 3. The identification of “Si par soufrir” by Jean Courtois was made by Bart Roose, “Luys de Narváez. Otra canción del primer tono” (roose2000]. Bevilacqua 2004 thesis (bevilacqua2004, 101-104) erroneously identifies it with Gombert’s chanson Tu pers son temp and claims that after some initial resemblance, it becomes an increasingly free paraphrase.
