Alongside religious music, which is often complex, the songs of the Renaissance are simple, light musical forms in which the text is often of primary importance. And better than history books, these airs, these songs then relate the pleasures and pains of daily life at the time.

‘Chansonnettes’ is the sort of gift that Doulce Mémoire and Denis Raisin-Dadre give at the end of their concerts, with a choice of Renaissance songs in a recreational atmosphere, even though emotion is present more than ever.

We find Mignonne allons voir si la rose by Jehan Chardavoine, as well as songs by Jehan Le Roy (As-tu point vu ce grand vilain, Ma maîtresse est toute angelette...), Jacques Arcadelt (Margot, labourez les vignes), and also songs given rise to by Jean de Nivelle. This celebratory disc salutes the 25th anniversary of the Doulce Mémoire ensemble and invites us to sing along with these airs that we have always known!
