Bergmanns (op. cit.) has noted that the word 'Jouissance', legible on the lower sheet of music, is the opening word of a poem by Marot (see the catalogue note) that was set to music by various composers, in particular Claudin de Sermisy (1490-1562), who seems to have been the author of the score depicted in this painting which recurs in the Harrach Three Woman Musicians.
