Example 8 Guillaume de Machaut Virelai

This Example by Guillaume de Machaut 1300 to 1377, is perhaps one of the best known of his songs/poems.  I used to play this in “Noise of Minstrels” the early music ensemble that I played in.  We did as a duet between a renaissance flute and medieval fyddle.

Here is the Eighth of the examples.  These 15 examples are the ones given at the back of 100 Ballades, Rondeaux and Virelais.  By Nigel Wilkins briefly reviewed above. Enjoy
