Qui voudra voir dedans une jeunesse
Pierre Clereau (or Cler’eau) (c.1520-c.1567)
Dixiesme Livre de Chansons, Le Roy & Ballard 1559
Another example of Clereau’s fairly simple yet attractive style. Little to say about this one, though note that this is one of the relatively few settings by a compioser outside the ‘literary circles’ which sets the two quatrains to a repeated opening section, with the remainder of the poem in a second section (also repeating the final line).
No recording to share I’m afraid 😦
