Comments: 
This work has contrafact in several trouvère sources; E serventois, arriere t'en revas, Trouvère M 19b; Trouvère T (troubadour delta) 51v; Trouvère N 153d; Trouvère P 169a; Trouvère X 201d. This melody is problematic, as noted by Van der Werf. From his description, he worked from a copy of the folio published in Monumenti vaticani di paleografia musicale latina vol. 19 which showed the lines fairly clearly, allowing him to comment that they were not drawn with regularly spacing and were not always level across the page; beyond this, the notation itself did not fit clearly into spaces or on lines in every case. This version was also lacking the final notes of the melody as the notes disappear into the darkened bound edge of the folio.. (VWE 115-118) The microfilm image held by the University of Alabama, however, does show the final notes of the melody, so the melody is completed here. As Van der Werf notes, there is a false start to the melody: the first melodic phrase is given with the first verse, then the second verse is written directly under that without space for notation. The melody and text then begin again below that, with more text/notes on the system than in the first case. There is a slight difference in the notes and underlay, with the first melody beginning with 4 E's with the second word, "chose" divided into two syllables and the fourth word, "que" having two notes in the first version and one in the second. (the first of those notes could be an abbreviation mark technically?)
