Je vivroie liement

1vv; Virelai 21
author of text

The folksong-like virelai Je vivroie liement is in binary metre with brisk short phrases. According to its text the lover would live joyfully if his lady knew that in her his only cure is found.

from notes by Jacques Boogaart © 2018

Le virelai dans le style d’une chanson populaire Je vivroie liement est de rythme binaire, avec de courtes phrases rapides. Selon le texte, l’amoureux vivrait joyeusement si sa dame savait qu’en elle se trouve son seul remède.

Das volksliedartiges Virelai Je vivroie liement ist im Zweiertakt und mit lebhaften, kurzen Phrasen. Dem Text zufolge würde der Liebende glücklich leben, wenn seine Dame wüsste, dass sich seine einzige Heilung in ihr findet.
