Seven Comical Chansons Of The Mid-16th Century - 4 Scores composed by Various. For TTTB/TTBB viols or ATTB Recorders/Voices. String Quartets, Quintets etc., Recorder Quartets. Thesaurus Musicus. Choral or Vocal Music. 4 Scores. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.LPMTM07).

These pieces are taken from various chanson collections published in Paris by Pierre Attaingnant between 1530 and 1540. They have texts that mostly reflect the common contemporary obsession with marital incompatibility, chiefly seen from the point of view of the wife, though the tables are turned in La teste, in which a husband complains that his wifes screaming is keeping him awake, and giving him a headache. Ung compaignon and Ho la he both fall into the fairly widespread genre of naughty tales, though both these pieces are mildly suggestive rather than graphic. PERFORMANCE: These pieces can be performed in several ways: 1)with four voices, with or without instruments. 2) with one voice singing the top part (or in the case of La teste, the tenor part), with the remaining parts played on stringed or wind instruments 3) with four instruments, preferably of one family, such as recorders (ATTB), flutes (TTTB/TTBB) or viols. If instruments are used, the performers should follow the words just as much as if they were singing. CONTENTS: La teste my fait si grant mal Mary je songay 1autre jour Et quant je suis couchee Ung compaignon gallin gallant La, la, la, je ne 1ose dire Jamais je naymeray grant homme Ho la he, par la vertu goy.
