I am taking part on Sat.28th July in this event.
I will sing two 12th C. Troubadour songs in a dialogue with Pete McPhail on flute and baritone sax
Lanquan li jorn ( Jaufre Rudel)
Dejosta-ls breus jorns (Peire d Alvernhe)
These will be interspersed with Joe Butler reading his freshly written translations.
They belong to two different strands: the Rudel is simple and powerfully wrought, while Peire’s (both in text and melody) is complex and contrary, a prime example of ‘trobar clus’.
