Dame, se vous m'estes lonteinne

1vv; Ballade 37
author of text

Dame, se vous m’estes lonteinne (Ballade 37) is an outlier among Machaut’s later ballades: it is the only monophonic example of the genre that Machaut composed, and its simple tunefulness, together with its rhetorically uncomplicated address to the lady, gives it an archaic feel.

Dame, se vous m’estes lonteinne (Ballade 37) est marginale parmi les dernières ballades de Machaut: c’est le seul exemple monophonique du genre composé par Machaut, et son simple caractère mélodieux, comme son discours à la dame, peu compliqué sur le plan rhétorique, lui donnent un côté archaïque.

Die Ballade Dame, se vous m’estes lonteinne (Ballade 37) bildet unter Machauts Balladen einen Ausnahmefall: Sie ist das einzige einstimmige Beispiel der Gattung, das Machaut komponierte. In ihrer schlichten melodischen Kraft und der rhetorisch unkomplizierten Anrede der Dame wirkt sie archaisch.
