Chanter en langue allemande au XIVe siècle

Abstract : The medieval song tradition in the German language is documented by relatively late and mainly textual sources. This article aims to show that the joint consideration of text and melodies help revisiting to revisit the relationship between the German tradition and the traditions of the troubadours and trouvères. After a brief presentation of the musical sources prior to the 15th century, we will analyse the relationship between language, discourse and music in the German song of the 14th century, by focusing on three songs from different corpora, representative of the Spruch (didactic poetry) and Minnesang (courtly poetry) traditions. In doing so, we will point out some specificities of the German tradition that may challenge the commonly accepted influence of the French and Occitan traditions.
