Description

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.
