Notes and Editorial Reviews

The purpose of this recording of the songs of Ventadorn, Faidit and Palol and instrumental pieces by anonymous composers of the same period is present the creations of the troubadours and the jongleurs of the Middle Ages. The most interesting aspect of this recording for us as performing musicians was neither the revival of courtly love as it was then experienced, nor the performance of the songs as we may suppose that they were originally sung, but was rather the sharing of the discovery of the astonishing philosophy of life promoted by the totemic phrase ‘motz et sos’ (words and music). The ensemble Millenarium’s previous release of medieval dances received dazzling reviews from fans and critics. This production of Troubadours’ Songs and Read more Jongleurs’ Dances is sure to follow their previous release in stunning fashion. Read less
