Synopsis: This groundbreaking anthology brings together for the first time the works of women poet-composers, or trouveres, in northern France in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Refuting the long-held notion that there are no extant Old French lyrics by women from this period, the editors of the volume present songs attributed to eight named female trouveres along with a varied selection of anonymous compositions in the feminine voice that may have been composed by women. The book includes the Old French texts of seventy-five compositions, extant music for eighteen monophonic songs and nineteen polyphonic motets, English translations, and a substantial introduction.

Product Description: The historical existence of women trouveres in northern France during the 12th and 13th centuries has been doubted, largely because many songs were anonymous. This anthology of over 70 Old French songs, accompanied by parallel English verse translation, aims to identify female authorship, based on the evidence of lyrics, linguistics and associated manuscript details. The extensive introduction discusses the female voice in a range of lyric types, including `chanson de femme' laments, romances and indecent vernacular songs, and considers the controversial role of women poets and musicians in medieval society. Includes extracts of sheet music.
