The present program is made up first of songs mentioned in Chaucer, matched either to surviving medieval melodies on their texts or to other surviving medieval melodies which fit the Chaucer texts. Some other tunes connected in more oblique ways, such as the Machaut, are also included as explained in the notes.
This recording is connected to the publication of medieval English literature scholar Carol Wood's book The Chaucer Songbook, which explains the connections between songs named in Chaucer and surviving medieval melodies more carefully.
