A chantar m'er

The spicy loveletters of a Countess and her troubadour


12th century Beatriz, Countess of Dia and spouse of Guillaume de Poitiers, maintained a pretty hot and stormy liaison with Raimbaut d'Orange, first-class womanizer and much acclaimed troubadour. Both lovers wrote breathtaking letters, cansos and sirventés. Il Nostromo del Sogno takes you to the very heart of Occitan lovelyrics, questing for lost melodies...and perpetual emotions.
