Bernart praised love above all else in his music and poetry, and his passion ran deeply through his work. Apter (English, Central Michigan U.) captures this sincerity and enthusiasm while placing it firmly in its historical context, through multiple translations and commentary throughout the text. After a lengthy introduction in which she provides historical background both of Bernart and the trobador phenomenon, she translates each song in both poetical and literal forms to allow all of the meanings of Bernart's work to shine through, and she includes musical arrangements that would satisfy even a 12th-century trobador.
