 Ah ! Qu'il est doux   Tircis disait l'autre jour

DEUX PETITS AIRS TENDRES

(two short tender songs)

Anonymous 18th century
  • Ah ! Qu'il est doux de revoir
  • Tircis disait l'autre jour
LANGUAGE : French
VOICES : SABar (3 mixed voices)
PAGES : 3

The Parisian publisher Christophe Ballard has printed a set of love songs (tender tunes) for one, two or three voices. These two songs (1711), for 3 mixed voices, have all the characteristics of French baroque expression and writing: harmony, melodic lines, support ...

The language of this era is rich, evocative and in its elegant way, although today it seems very mannered. Mythological references and the idealization of nature are also very common in Baroque songs.

Ah! How sweet it is to see what we love,

At the very time that we lose all hope

Never see him again! When pleasure follows extreme pain,

It is a happiness which one cannot conceive.

Tircis said the other day

By caressing her shepherdess:

Spring is back

And you are no longer severe.
