Pierre Passereau was a French composer who lied in the mid-sixteenth century.  He favored popular, rustic and often bawdy texts. His best-known chanson is the four-voiced "Il est bel et bon, commère, mon mari."

He is handsome and fine, my husband is,
There were two gossiping women in the village,
Saying one to the other, do you have a good husband?
He doesn't scold me, or beat me either.
He does the chores,
He feeds the chickens
And I take my pleasure.
Really you have to laugh
to hear the cries of the chicks and hens:
Co, co, co, co, dae, little flirt, what's this?
