A “virelai” is a style of poem that was popular in the medieval times. The meter of the poem was variable, but they did ultimately rhyme, and contain 3 lines per stanza.

This tune, Quant Je Suis Mis, is no exception. It has 3 lines, and can be repeated as many times as you like. The title translates to, As I Am Laid.

Guillaume de Machaut was the most important composer and poet of his time, and wrote 39 “virelais”, as well as hundreds of poems and songs in other styles. He worked for several lords, ladies, adventurers and conquerors, as well as Pope Benedict XII. And in addition to numerous battles and excursions, Machaut survived the Black Death that devastated Europe.
