Description: First-of-its-kind compilation

This anthology, the first of its kind, offers a broad, representative selection of lyric compositions by the poet-musicians of 12th- and 13th-century France: the groundbreaking Provencal troubadours of the south -- the originators of "courtly love" -- and their northern counterparts, the trouveres. The fruit of both musicological and philological expertise, the collection is an invaluable resource for musical performers no less than students of early poetry.

Most songs accompanied by music

The 144 songs, authoritatively edited from medieval manuscripts, comprise works by 25 troubadours and 27 trouveres, including a number of anonymous pieces. Most are accompanied by their music. All are presented with parallel English translations. The selection ranges across the various surviving types of lyric production, from the high style of the cansos to women's ballad-like weaving songs and the first motets.

Provides historical and cultural context

Three introductory essays treat the history and cultural significance of this repertory, its themes and forms, the relation between text and melody, manuscript transmission and the question of critical editing, performance practice, and other matters. In addition, the individual songs are all presented with specific commentary on words and music. An extensive bibliography and other editorial apparatus complete the volume.

Hear the songs -- on an audio CD

In conjunction with the Folger Shakespeare Library, a companion CD recording of 12 pieces from the anthology, Songs of the Troubadours and Trouveres: Music and Poetry from Medieval France, is included with this book.
