Bon jour mon cœur  [1'25]

Goudimel had the misfortune to be killed at Lyons in anti-Protestant riots in the aftermath of the St Bartholomew’s Day massacre. Primarily a composer of church music (at first for the Latin rite), Goudimel is famous for his four-part setting of the Geneva Psalter. However, this delightful chanson is a worthy counterpart to Lassus’ better known setting of the same text.

from notes by Paul Hillier © 1990

Goudimel trouva malheureusement la mort à Lyon au cours des manisfestations anti-protestantes qui suivirent le massacre de la Saint Barthélémy. Principalement un compositeur de musique d’église (à l’origine pour le rite latin), Goudimel est célèbre pour sa mise en musique en quatre parties du Psautier de Genève. Néanmoins, cette charmante chanson n’a rien à envier à la mise en musique Lassus, plus connue, du même texte.

Français: Marianne Fernée

Goudimel wurde unglücklicherweise in anti-protestantischen Tumulten, Nachwirkungen des Massakers in der St. Bartholomäusnacht, in Lyons getötet. Er hat hauptsächlich Kirchenmusik komponiert (anfänglich für die lateinische Liturgie) und ist berühmt für seine vierstimmige Vertonung des Genfer Psalters. Aber dieses reizende chanson Goudimels ist ein würdiges Gegenstück zu der bekannteren Vertonung desselben Textes durch Lassus.
