Jerusalem! grant damage me fais
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In this song the longing for Jerusalem becomes a wounded disdain for the Holy City, expressed by a woman whose lover has embarked for a crusade. To save this remarkable poem from silence – it has survived without the music it was clearly intended to have – the editor has composed a setting in the style of a grand chant. The attribution in the unique source to the trouvère Gautier d’Epinal (died c1271) has been generally rejected.
