About this musical offering...

The word troubadour comes from trobar—to find, to discover, to compose. In the fertile ground of Occitania and Galicia, the art of trobar became an important and inspirational craft. Rules of conduct and secular morals, the importance of courtesy and honor in relationships, and the highly valued and much misunderstood ideal of unrequited love were frequent subjects of troubadour lyrics. Western poetry itself was bor n from the forms, styles, and themes created by the troubadours of Occitania. We complete our picture of the culture of the time with examples of Aquitanian chant, Iberian monophony, and the “boyfriend” songs of Martim Codax.

Recorded live March 3, 2013, at First Presbyterian Church, Austin, TX. Jay Norwood, engineer.
