Music of the Troubadours

The Troubadours were lyric poets and poet-musicians from France.  The poets and poet-musicians active in Southern France were referred to as Troubadours.  The poets and poet-musicians active in Northern France were referred to as Trouvères.  Many of the songs were about courtly love.  Here are two troubadour songs.  The first song is called Humils forfaitz and it is by Giraut Riquier (c.1230-c.1300).  The second song is called Ai tal domna and it is by Berenguier de Palau (early 12th century).
