Abstract (300 words maximum)

For many years, France has been known as the country of love. This paper aims to explore the connection between French romantic music and the global idealization of love. In order to evaluate this relationship, I explore the evolution of French romantic music by analyzing three pieces across three different periods of music history in France: ““Can vei la lauzeta mover” written by Bernart de Ventadorn (12th century) from the medieval period, ““Dueil Angoisseux” written by Gilles Binchois from the renaissance period, and finally ““Vos mespris chaque jour” Written by Michel Lambert from the baroque period. The results of this analysis demonstrate a common narrative between the development of love in France and the idea of love beyond French borders. This paper’s implications spread far beyond the country of France as it seeks to show how developments within a single country can spread throughout the world.

Music and Love in France From the Middle Ages through the Baroque

For many years, France has been known as the country of love. This paper aims to explore the connection between French romantic music and the global idealization of love. In order to evaluate this relationship, I explore the evolution of French romantic music by analyzing three pieces across three different periods of music history in France: ““Can vei la lauzeta mover” written by Bernart de Ventadorn (12th century) from the medieval period, ““Dueil Angoisseux” written by Gilles Binchois from the renaissance period, and finally ““Vos mespris chaque jour” Written by Michel Lambert from the baroque period. The results of this analysis demonstrate a common narrative between the development of love in France and the idea of love beyond French borders. This paper’s implications spread far beyond the country of France as it seeks to show how developments within a single country can spread throughout the world.
