Tourdion‬: Petits Chanteurs de Sainte Croix de Neuilly

12:30 pm in Art, Culture, Uncategorized by

Tourdion was a medieval dance, it fell out of favour but survived as a drinking song popularised by Pierre Attaignant who published it shortly before his death in 1552. (It remains popular to this day I’ve heard  a rock version at a concert in Béziers sung  by the group “Sangria Gratuite”). This video is of Tourdion being sung by the Petits Chanteurs de Sainte-Croix de Neuilly singing “Tourdion”. Lyrics below the video. Enjoy :-)
