(1160 - 1207)

A member of the minor nobility, Raimbaut de Vaqueiras was an associate of the leading troubadour poets and singers of his time, serving intermittently at the court of Bonifatius I of Monferrat, with whom he shared military exploits and possibly death on the battlefield.


35 poems by Raimbaut survive, seven of them with music. He had command of a number of languages, apart from his native Provençal. The best known of these is Kalenda maya, its music based on an existing estampie.
