Spotlight on a Newly Recovered Song: the Anonymous Virelai Si vous voullez que je vous ame from the Leuven Chansonniet

Research output: Contributions to journalsArticlepeer-review



The anonymous virelai Si vous voullez is one of the most striking chansons of the twelve unica transmitted in the Leuven Chansonnier. Detailed analysis reveals a remarkably sophisticated melodic and formal structure. Consideration of its stylistic profile (and an observation by Adam Knight Gilbert) leads to a proposed attribution to Alexander Agricola (c. 1456-1506).
