Alla francesca - Discantus - Brigitte Lesne

Distant love

Songs and polyphonies of courtly love / Alla francesca, feminine vocal trio and strings instruments


The troubadours and trouveres from Middle Ages can't stop singing courtly love : men and women burn with passion, weep tears of joy and languish of an unattainable love. Musicians-poets singing in oïl language make already lovers dream : Thibaut de Champagne, Richard de Fournival, Moniot d'Arras and, above all, Guillaume de Machaut, this last one mixing voice and instruments in ingenious polyphonies. Three singers, a fiddle, a medieval harp and percussions bring them back to life in the universe of poetry and medieval music.
