Discussion: 

A pretty, silly, four-part song by Pierre Certon (c. 1500-1572).

Rough translation: 

La la la, I shouldn't tell, la la la, I'll tell you. 

There is a man in out village who is jealous of his wife. 

He is not jealous without cause, he's altogether a cuckold.

La la la ...

 

Sound: 

A youtube clip of the King's Singers: very fast, but very clear.

A slower version, from Quartetto Vocale.

You can find each part alone on the old Ildhafn music page (thanks, Cicilia).
