Le ciel ne veut, dame
Poésies de P. de Ronsard et autres Poëtes, 1579
A more substantial Regnard setting this time, in two parts but still setting only the two quatrains of the sonnet. Regnard sems not to have worried too much about the poetic form, the song was what matterd to him! Once again the second half, with its ‘sadder’ feel, has a lot more chromaticism – but for me the more interesting part is the opening where Regnard really indulges himself in some proper polyphony with the voices largely independent.
Sadly, no-one seems to have recorded this piece so I cannot point you at a recorded extract.
