Last year Radio 3 broadcast three programmes devoted to some of the earliest secular songs extant, those of the Provencal poet-composers known as the Troubadours. The influence of the Troubadours spread far afield but one immediate effect was on the following generation of musicians working just beyond the boundaries of Provence - the Trouveres. In a further three programmes PIERS BURTON-PAGE traces the development of the lyric impulse in Northern France.
1: Songs of Love

A panorama of people, places and things, factual and fictional, in the traditionalist French-speaking culture of 1850 to 1950.
A series of 13 talks by Richard Cobb , Professor of Modern History and Fellow of Worcester College, Oxford.
