Pouray je avoir vostre mercy?

Pouray je avoir vostre mercy?, a rondeau, is one of several cases in which Dufay refers to a particular day in the courtly calendar: here New Year’s Day, on which the lover begs his lady to accept his approaches. Given that in these years Dufay’s only known association with a secular court was with that of the Malatesta, it is worth recalling that most northern Italian courts at the time seem to have favoured French as the language of their secular music.

Pouray je avoir vostre mercy?, également un rondeau, est l’un des nombreux exemples où Dufay fait référence à un jour précis du calendrier courtois: ici le Jour de l’An, où l’amoureux demande à sa dame d’accepter ses avances. Comme au cours de ces années-là, la seule relation connue de Dufay avec une cour laïque était celle de Malatesta, il n’est pas inutile de rappeler qu’à cette époque la plupart des cours d’Italie du Nord semblent avoir privilégié le français comme langue de la musique profane.

Pouray je avoir vostre mercy?, ebenfalls ein Rondeau, gehört zu einer Gruppe von Stücken, in denen Dufay auf einen bestimmten Tag im höfischen Kalender verweist. Hierbei handelt es sich um den Neujahrstag, an dem der Liebende seine Dame bittet, seine Avancen zu akzeptieren. Da der einzige weltliche Hof, zu dem Dufay in jener Zeit bekanntermaßen Verbindungen hatte, der von Malatesta war, sei darauf hingewiesen, dass an den meisten Höfen im Norden Italiens zu der Zeit die bevorzugte Sprache in der Säkularmusik das Französische war.
