Notes: 
Date and origin from Gennrich 1958-1965, vol. 4, 3, and Brunel, 96. This manuscript is not always given as a troubadour manuscript because it is a sacred work rather than troubadour lyric. There are 16 melodies in the play and one text with staves but without notes; at least three of the melodies are contrafacts of troubadour lyric.
