Attaingnant : Que Je Chatoulle Ta Fossette, Dancer
Pierre Attaingnant: Que je chatoulle ta fossette, Danceries
The several volumes of Danceries occupy an important place amongst the numerous works published by Pierre Attaingnant in Paris. Although they were principally intended to give pleasure to instrumentalists, the ordering of the various pieces suggests that they also could well have been used to accompany dancers — and this has not been forgotten by the musicians of Doulce Mémoire. We have added a number of songs to these dances, songs whose titles or character provide a reminder of the close connections that existed between music for dancing and vocal music at that time.
