New album!

I can heartily recommend Bertran de Born: Troubadour et Seigneur de Hautefort, by Olivier Payrat and Maurice Moncozet. It gives 11 songs by Bertran, some set to his own tunes, other to contrafact. Ara sei eu de pretz qu'al la plus gran, his song about Conrad of Montferrat, is set to a melody by Gaucelm Faidit (who worked at the Monferrine court). It's on Gérard Zuchetto's Tróba Vox label, TR023. Oh, and it was actually recorded in the castle chapel at Hautefort!

My talk on Conrad for the Hull branch of the Dante Alighieri Society went well, too!
