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
Onques n’amai
De fine amor
Qui loiaument sert s’amie
J’aloie l’autrier errant
Nus hom ne puet
Septime estampie real
Dame, merci, une rien vos demant
En talent ai que je die
Pour conforter ma pesance
L’autrier par la matinee
Dou tres douz
Au tans plein de felonie
Danse real
Seignor, saichies qui or ne s’en ira
Quinte estampie real

Alla Francesca
Brigitte Lesne
