Musicalis scientia / Scientie laudabilis

Language: Latin

 Musicalis scientia qua regitur melodia
 Universis rectoribus
 arte suaque praticis, specialiter dilectis
 subscriptis suis sublectis
 De Douacho dicto Thoma cuius fama fuit Roma
 Johanni de Muris quoque de Viteri Philippoque
 normanno Dyonisio de Burces et Egidio
 Gaudefrido de Baralis, Valquero de Valencienis
 de Palatio Roberto atque Louchart Ingelberto
 dicto de Soissons Garino, Egidio de Morino
 Reginaldo De Tyremont, G. D'Orbendas et Jo. Du Pont
 Guisardo de Cameraco et de Bailleul Reginaldo
 atque de Machau Guillelmo, Petro Blavot et Matheo
 de Luceu, D'Arras Jacobo.
 Salutem! et observare sua precepta mandare
 vestrum cuilibet cupio, ne sit erroris motio
 in dominam rethoricam neque contra grammaticam
 lingua secans incomplexa sit in silentio nexa;
 cuncta vitia cavete in melodia valete

 Scientie laudabilis musice venerabili
 rethorica scientia cum omni reverentia,
 salutem! o dulcissima, sublectisque gratissima,
 tali conquerens nuntio: quod maxima corruptio
 a multis canentibus in nostris dictaminibus.
 Nam bividunt simplicia faciendo suspiria,
 quare pietate rogito remdium his audito!
