Edition notes: Since some phrases are partly shifted by half a bar (eg "en souspirant"), this edition is like the original without bar lines.

To make it easier for an alto to sing, it is transposed up one note. The text distribution is as close as possible to the first print, some had to be guessed. In contrast to the text on this page, Crecquillon writes "quiers" instead of "quierera" in all four voice books.

Original text
Toutes les nuictz que sans vous ie me couche
pensant a vous ne fais que sommeiller
en resvant iusques au resveiller
incessament vous quierera par my la chouce
et bien souvent en lieu de vostre bouche
en soupirant je baise loireiller
toutes les nuictz

Modern French
Toutes les nuits que sans vous je me couche
en pensant à vous, je ne fais que sommeiller
en rêvant jusqu'au réveil.
Incessament je vous demanderai dans ma couche
car je baise l'oreiller en lieu de votre bouche
en soupirant
toutes les nuits.

English.png English translation

Every night when I seek my bed without you.
thinking of you, the only sleep I find
is dreaming about you until the morrow.
Incessantly I'd have you in my bed
since I find myself kissing the pillow instead of your mouth
and sighing deeply
every night.
