This anthology offers a broad, representative selection of lyric compositions by the poet-musicians of 12th- and 13th-century France: the Provencal troubadours of the south - the originators of "courtly love" - and their northern counterparts, the trouveres. Using both musicological and philological expertise, the collection is a valuable resource for musical performers and students of early poetry. The audio CD has recordings of 12 pieces from the anthology.

This is the first published comprehensive anthology of texts, English translations, and music of Old Occitan and Old French secular song, and it surely will find a significant niche in the libraries of scholars of these repertories.
