Courtly Love Songs of Medieval France

Mary O'Neill examines the legacy of the medieval poet composers of Northern France, the trouvères. For many years problems and difficulties concerning the surviving melodies have prevented us from accessing these songs. Many of these problems are addressed here, bringing us closer to a true understanding of the repertoire.
