Conception & research: Pierre-F. Roberge

Last update: 04/07/2007

This is a nearly complete discography of Friedrich von Hûsen
It will updated as needed.

Literary and Musicological notes.
According to Burkhard Kippenberg & Lorenz Welker in Grove Music Online (2004), 53 strophes, written by Friedrich von Hûsen, have survived (in the Weingartner and Manesse Manuscripts), which can be arranged into 17 or 20 lieder, but all without melodies. Music can be only assigned tentatively to those of his poems that seem to be direct contrafacta of Romance poems whose melodies survive.
References MF = Minnesangs Frühling; PC = Pillet-Carsten; R. = Paris, Bibl. Nat., fr. 1591)

Part I lists Frauenlob's works, then in alphabetical order of label:
(a) Works listed in Grove Music Online as "contrafacta"
(b) Works listed in Grove Music Online as "possibly"
(c) Works listed in Grove Music Online as "more doubtful" or if not precisely identified.
Part I lists only original releases.

Part II lists recordings in part I, but re-edited from LP or tape to CD, or the most recent release of those originally issued on CD; this list includes also those released only on cassettes or video.
When no number precedes the entry, it means that the CD or tape contains only composite sections or is an anthology of a CD or tape already listed in Part II.

Part III lists any recordings newly or soon to be released.
