Gilles Binchois - Triste plaisir et douleureuse joye

Chanson “Triste plaisir et douleureuse joye” composed by Gilles de Binche (or Binchois), a.k.a. GILLES DE BINS.

Poem: Alain Chartier (1385-1433)

[lyrics] Triste plaisir et douloureuse joye,
Aspre doulceur, desconfort ennuieux,
Ris en plorant, souvenir oublieux
M’acompaignent, combien que seul je soye.

Embuchié sont, affin qu’on ne les voye
Dedans mon cueur, en l’ombre de mes yeux.
Triste plaisir et amoureuse joye !

C’est mon trésor, ma part et ma monoyé ;
De quoy Dangier est sur moy envieux
Bien le sera s’il me voit avoir mieulx
Quant il a deuil de ce qu’Amour m’envoye.
Triste plaisir et douloureuse joye.

(translation)
Sad pleasure and sorrowful joy,
bitter sweetness, agonizing comfort,
laughter full of tears, dwindling memories,
those are my friends, even though I am alone.

This is my treasure, my only wealth.
That is why Distress is full of envy:
if only he could see my advantage,
for he hates me for what Love has given me.

Played by Lena Susanne Norin (Alto), Randall Cook (viol’ da gamba/Vielle/fiddle) and Susanne Ansorg (Rebec/fiddle).
