(recorded extract  – none available)


Regnard, as normal, sets only the opening lines of Ronsard’s poem.

I’m afraid I don’t (yet?) have a recording of this song to provide an extract.

Here is the page from the bassus part-book, with its characteristically elaborate initial capital!  It is taken from the online copy made avaialble by the Bibliothèque municipale, Orléans, in their Bibliothèques Virtuelles Humanistes.



About fattoxxon

Who am I? Lover of all sorts of music - classical, medieval, world (anything from Africa), world-classical (Uzbek & Iraqi magam for instance), and virtually anything that won't be on the music charts... Lover of Ronsard's poetry (obviously) and of sonnets in general. Reader of English, French, Latin & other literature. And who is Fattoxxon? An allusion to an Uzbek singer - pronounce it Patahan, with a very plosive 'P' and a throaty 'h', as in 'khan')
