by Pierre Guédron (1563-1621)

Si jamais mon ame blessée is among the better-known airs de cour attributed to Pierre Guédron. It was first published as a solo air with lute accompaniment by Jean Baptiste Besard in his Thesaurus Harmonicus (Cologne, 1603). For our recording, we have chosen a later setting from the series of prints published by Ballard (1615) which, with its more refined rhythmic subtleties, we believe more closely represents the composer’s original conception of the air than does the slightly more ornamented version found in Besard.
