“Puis que malhuer” ascribed to Du Four by Du Chemin in 1549. Text is from Du Saix, Petit Fatras of 1537. Jean Du Four sent a poetic epistle to Hector Boucher, a royal singer to François I during the 1530’s or 1540’s. See Cazaux,, p. 260-1. The epistle was written before 1530, and cites a number of singers from the French royal chapel, including Sermisy.
