Lyesse m'a mandé salut
For Philip the Good’s magnificent feasts, such as his swearing in in Mons in 1427 or his marriage to Isabella of Portugal in 1430, Binchois composed works dedicated to courtly love, sung by the poets of his time. The balanced, three-part chansons with instrumental colour create an atmosphere of blissful, almost hypnotic perfection. Lyesse m'a mandé salut is one of these chansons. It is often performed with instruments only.

Patron de bonté, père de joyeuseté
With this score it is difficult to make a perfect transcription. We have attempted to place a version online which is relatively true to the source material and is clearly legible for modern singers.
