Dou mal qui m'a longuement

composer
1vv; Virelai 8
author of text

 
The theme of pain is picked up more overtly in the virelai Dou mal qui m’a longuement (Virelai 8), in which the protagonist compares love to a sickness, but one that he willingly and gratefully endures. The beautiful simplicity of the melody, which frequently moves by step, does not evoke pain, but rather the joyful acceptance of suffering for a lady who is truly worthy.

Le thème de la douleur est repris plus ouvertement dans le virelai Dou mal qui m’a longuement (Virelai 8), où le protagoniste compare l’amour à une maladie, mais une maladie qu’il endure volontiers et avec reconnaissance. La magnifique simplicité de la mélodie, qui avance souvent pas à pas, n’évoque pas la douleur, mais plutôt l’acceptation joyeuse de souffrir pour une dame qui en est vraiment digne.

Das Thema des Schmerzes kommt in dem Virelai Dou mal qui m’a longuement (Virelai 8) noch deutlicher zur Sprache, wo der Protagonist die Liebe mit einer Krankheit vergleicht, die er gleichwohl willens und dankbar erträgt. Die wunderschöne Schlichtheit der Melodie, die sich zumeist schrittweise bewegt, stellt keinen Schmerz dar, sondern die heitere Akzeptanz des Leidens für eine äußerst würdige Dame.
