There is hardly a better representative of medieval poetry than Walther von der Vogelweide. He is considered one of the most important Minnesänger and Sangspruch (sung speech) poets of the Middle Ages.

Sabine Lutzenberger and the ensemble Per-Sonat have underlaid some of Walther's poems with his own "Tönen" (= melodies), others with music of his contemporaries, completing fragments and reproducing several melodies in the style of the period.

Sangspruch, one of most important handed-down traditions together with the Minnesang, functions here as the link between history and living performance practice. The sources extend from the 13th century to the Meistersang.

Listeners can now experience Walther's magnificent poetry sung for the first time on this CD.

- Under der linden
- Alrerst lebe ich mir werde
- Die welt was gelf rot unde bla
- Do der sumer komen was
- Mir ist verspert der saelden tor
- Der hof zu Wiene sprach ze mir
- Ich saz uf einem steine
- Ich horte diu wazzer dieen
- Ich sach mit minen ougen
- Der stuol ze Rome
- Ahi wie kristenliche nu der bebest lachet
- In nomine domini
- Ich wil nu teilen e ich far
- Sit mir din niht mer werden mac
- Man mac wol offenbare sehen
