Foy porter

Virelai 22; 1v
author of text

Foy porter (Virelai 22), again a testimony of the lover’s loyalty, is remarkable for its short lines of text and the accordingly brief melodic lines, sung in an energetic duple measure.

from notes by Jacques Boogaart © 2017

Foy porter (Virelai 22), à nouveau un témoignage de la loyauté d’un amoureux, est remarquable pour ses courtes lignes de texte et ses lignes mélodiques aussi brèves, chantées sur un rythme binaire énergique.

Foy porter (Virelai 22), wiederum ein Treueschwur, ist aufgrund seiner kurzen Textzeilen und den entsprechend kurzen Melodielinien bemerkenswert, die in einem energischen geraden Takt gesungen werden.
