TENET: “The Sounds of Time: Songs of the Trouvères”

Presented by Early Music Now

An exploration of 12th- and 13th-century songs by the French trouvères, who took over many of the forms invented by troubadours, but also infused a new, lighter vein into this great lyric tradition, in which “high art” songs of courtly love rub shoulders with cheeky tales.
