Spending time with the Troubadours…

…in the South of France/North of Spain.

The language of this region was that of the troubadours and the Cathars.

“THEY” tried repeatedly to destroy all memory of it – like Welsh and Gaelic ( and Tartaria!) – but the people never let go of their true heritage.




Eu dic pauc q’ins el cor m’esta
q’estar me fa temen paors;
la lenga’s feing mas lo cors vol
so don dolen si sojorna:
ie’n languis, mas no s’en clama
qu’en tant a randa
cum mars terra guaranda
non a tan gen,
cum la cauzida
qu’ieu ai encobida.
