  1. Chansonnier

    A chansonnier is a manuscript or printed book which contains a collection of chansons, or polyphonic and monophonic settings of songs, hence literally "song-books," although some manuscripts are so called even though they preserve the text but not the music. The most important chansonniers contain lyrics, poems and songs of the troubadours and trouvères of the Middle Ages. Prior to 1420, many song-books contained both sacred and secular music, one exception being those containing the work of Guillaume de Machaut. Around 1420, sacred and secular music was segregated into separate sources, with large choirbooks containing sacred music, and smaller chansonniers for more private use by the privileged. Chansonniers were compiled primarily in France, but also in Italy, Germany and in the Iberian peninsula. In Quebec, Canada: "Is called 'Chansonnier' a poet songwriter, solitary singer, who sings his own songs with a guitar, during the 1960s and 1970s. Compared to the popular singer, the chansonnier needs no artifice to sing his soul poetry. He performs in «Les Boites à Chansons». which are flourishing in those years. His themes songs vary but include nature, love, simplcity, and a social interest to improve his world. The chansonnier is making way for social and political awareness during the Quiet Revolution, that leads to the affirmation of Quebecers National identity.
