This flying literature, as it is well called in French, lacks in most cases the freshness and spontaneity of mediaeval folk-song. After studying medicine and natural science under the protection of Geoffrey d'Estissac, Bishop of Maillezais, he went to Montpellier to continue these studies, and in the early years of the fourth decade of the century practised regularly at Lyons.
