Loosely based on ‘Belle qui tiens ma vie’ by Jéhan Tabourot, aka Thoinot Arbeau. I learned the melody about twenty years ago. Since then I've forgotten hundreds of melodies, but this one has stuck.
The tuning is in 7-limit just intonation, using the usual minor scale, but with a 27/20 fourth, a 27/16 maj 6th and a 27/14 maj 7th.
