Chansons Sur des Poemes de Ronsard (CD)

Price: $12.95

Description

Pierre de Ronsard's poetry was a popular source for lyrics among 16th- and 17th-century French composers. Henri Matisse created an artist's book in 1948 based on the poetry of Pierre de Ronsard, which was exhibited at the Norton Simon Museum in 2009. A selection of Ronsard's lyrics put to music by the 16th-century composer Guillaume Boni (which are on this CD) was played in the exhibition gallery.
