Mentioned by Dante amongst 'the most illustrious poets of his time, Thibaut de Champagne (1201-1253), also called 'Thibaut the Songwriter', was one of France's greatest trouvères (or 'musician-poet' in langue d’oïl). He left us some sixty songs, cultivating highly varied musical genres: songs of love and of the crusades, pastourelles, hymns to the Virgin, jeux-partis… Count of Champagne and King of Navarre, grandson of Marie de France and great-grandson of Eleanor of Aquitaine,he was chosen by the Holy See and numerous barons to lead a new crusade in 1239. A seal from 1226 portrays him on horseback, brandishing his sword. This disc proposes an anthology of his compositions, all coming from the very famous songbook copied at the end of the 13th century: the 'King's manuscript'. As a counterpoint to the songs and in harmony with them, it also presents motets and instrumental dances representative of the musical repertoires of the period.


Chancon ferai, que talent m'en est pris
Onques n'amai [Motet, 13th Century]
De fine amor vient seance et biautez
J'aloie l'autrier errant
Nus hon ne puet ami reconforter
La septime estampie real [13th century]
Dame, merci, une rien vous demant
En talent ai que je die
Pour conforter ma pesance
L'autrier par la matinee
Du tres douc nom a la vierge Marie
Au tens plain de felonie
Danse real [13th Century]
Seignor, sachies, qui or ne s'en ira
La quinte estampie real [13th century]

  1. Hello Biblixi,
    It would be time to think about adding some new download sites, which would be much faster and allow simultaneous downloads like they are used by other bloggers.
