Valentine's Day  [The program differs from the listing in Patterns Magazine]

This week we're delving into the concept of fin'amor, which is often translated as courtly love. The troubadours were the most famous courtly love poets, but they weren't the only ones. We'll hear motets from the Montpellier Codex, songs from Le Voir Dit by Machaut, and the dawn song Reis Glorios. Our performers include Anonymous 4, Paul Hillier, and the Oxford Camerata.

Giraut de Bornelh: Reis Glorios. Paul Hillier, baritone; Stephen Stubbs, lute
Adam de la Halle: Je muir. Ensemble Leones
Guillaume de Machaut: Plourez Dames; Puis qu’en oubli; Dis et sept cinq; Oxford Camerata
Guillaume de Machaut: Douce Dame. Orlando Consort
Anon.: Plus bele que flor; Amours mi font souffrir; Celui en qui; Au cuer un mal; Joliement; and
Ce que je tieng;  J’ai si bien mon cuer assiz; Dame, que je n’os noumer; Entre Copin; Anonymous 4
