General Information

Title: Les miens aussi
Composer: Tielman Susato

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: STTB
Genre: SecularChanson

First published: 1549 in Unziesme livre contenant vingt et neuf chansons amoureuses (Tielman Susato), no. 18
Description: This is a chanson réponse to Josquin's Mille regretz. The text plays ironically with the closing line of the Josquin chanson ("my days will soon end") by starting "mine will end as fast" -- referring not to the narrator's days, but to her sorrow at the departure of her lover.

Les miens aussi brief verras decliner
voiant au vray que fortune envieuse
de nostre amour veult estre curieuse
pas ung deppart le faire decliner.

English.png English translation

Mine you are going to see as quickly wane
Now that I know clearly that jealous fate,
Eager to meddle in our love’s estate,
Seeks through one’s departure to make it wane.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
