Jaufre Rudel was the Prince of Blaye and a troubadour of the early12th century. It is thought he died during the Second Crusade, in or after 1147. He is noted for developing the theme of "love from afar" (amor de terra lonhdana). Much of the Trobador love poems related the pain of inaccessible love. This features in this song Riu de la fontana (waters of the fountain) here performed by the Oxford Trobadors with a contemporary arrangement and music by Ray Noble who sings it (yes that's me).
