Machaut's Je vivroie liement/Liement me deport - La Jolla Symphony & Chorus

3/8/2018; 5 minutes

As was the practice in a time (14th Century) before the delineation between poet and composer was as sharply drawn as today, Guillaume de Machaut set his own texts to music. "Je vivroie liement" for solo soprano, solo violin, and chamber orchestra is an homage to courtly love set to a lively fiddle dance tune that evokes both Celtic & Gypsy styles. Recorded on 12/10/2017. (#33374)
