Je vueil chanter de cuer joyeux

author of text
text is an acrostic of Jehan de Dinant, possibly being the name of the poet

 
Je vueil chanter de cuer joyeux celebrates May Day, a popular event in the courtly calendar, and was also apparently composed in the 1420s for the Malatesta court. One clue to its origin could be in the acrostic, created by the first letter of each line, spelling out the name of ‘Jehan de Dinant’—presumably the poet but just possibly the dedicatee. Sadly, he has not yet been identified.

Je vueil chanter de cuer joyeux célèbre le 1er mai, autre événement populaire dans le calendrier courtois, également composé apparemment dans les années 1420 pour la cour de Malatesta. Son acrostiche pourrait constituer un indice à propos de son origine: la première lettre de chaque vers, représentant le nom de «Jehan de Dinant»—sans doute le poète, mais il y a aussi une chance infirme qu’il en soit le dédicataire. Malheureusement, il n’a pas encore été identifié.

Mit Je vueil chanter de cuer joyeux wird der 1. Mai gefeiert—ein weiteres beliebtes Ereignis im höfischen Kalender—und entstand offenbar ebenfalls in den 1420er Jahren für den Hof Malatestas. Ein Hinweis auf sein Original könnte in dem Akrostichon aus den jeweils ersten Buchstaben jeder Zeile liegen, die den Namen „Jehan de Dinant“ ergeben—wahrscheinlich der Dichter, möglicherweise aber auch der Widmungsträger. Leider konnte er noch nicht identifiziert werden.
