It’s possible that I just played a little too much D&D as a kid, but I think these medieval songs are totally cool. These listening examples are just for your enjoyment—they won’t be on any test.
Puis qu’en oubli by Machaut
This is not one of the pieces on the listening exam, but it is a recording of the chanson whose text is referenced in the reading on Machaut: Puis qu’en oubli.
Quant la doulce jouvencelle
Let the two talented musicians of Asteria serve as your own personal time machine and enjoy a song from about 600 years ago.
