A collection of chansons printed in various collections between 1529 and 1543 by Pierre Attaingnant, the inventor of single-impression printing. The arrangement of chansons for lute or keyboard was an important source of instrumental music in the sixteenth century. The chansons in the present anthology, the fruits of a particularly rich period in French music, are modern arrangements for guitar or lute made in accordance with procedures found in French prints of the time. The musical styles range from the serious, imitative Franco-Flemish chanson of northern composers to the charming, light-hearted, and often ribald chansons that furnished musical entertainment in early sixteenth-century Paris. Although the arrangements are instrumental, text translations are furnished to aid in interpretation of the music and to amuse the modern reader as they amused the listener in the 1530s and 1540s. Standard notation only.
Chansons  from Attaingnant Prints 
Three-voice chansons 
Ce n'est pas, certes 
C'est grand erreur de cuider presumer 
Le cueur is mien 
D' amour je suis desheritee 
Je brusle et ars 
On a mal dit de mon  ami 
Le trop long temps 
Trop se fier 
Vive la marguerite 

Four-voice chansons 
Amour et mort me font outrage 
Gris et tanne me faut porter 
A l'aventure l'enterpris 
En l'ombre d'un buissonet 
Jamais je n' aimerai grand homme 
Tous compagnons qui beuvez  volontiers 
Apres avoir las tout mon temps  passe 
Nature a fait, ainsi Dieu 
Joie et douleur, mon ami 
Ma bouche rit 
II n' est  plaisir ni passetemps 
Notre dince, mon  compere 
Un jour un gallant  engrossa 
Pauvre coeur, tant il m'ennuie 
Apporte  a boire 
Reveillez  vous, jeunes dames qui dormez
