While Sperance and La bonne volonte que j'ey have not been identified, the music for the basse danse Joyeux spoyr appears in two different sources, and Rostit bollit joyeux was one of the most popular basses danses in the 15th century `that was making the rounds of Europe, from royal court to barnyard'.
135v: `Ipsum Anthonium docere et instruere ad ludendum de citara sive arpa / Carmina sive cantinellas sequentes / Et primo Joyeux spoyr / Item Sperance / Rostit bollit joyeux a contre / la bone volonte que j'ey / a deux mesures contenant laubedance et le pas de breban / deux bergeres cest assavoir le joly vertboyz et jauffroy / Et lentrea acostumea a toutes dances.
