about

Gwerz Inês (Inês’ lament) – 7’24
Lyrics : Stenn Charbonneau
Music : traditional from Central Brittany (Madame Bertrand)
Instruments : electric ‘ud, electric guitar

Inês and Pedro is the most iconic Portuguese love story, and became famous in Luís de Camões poems (Os Luisiadas, 1572). When young Prince Pedro fell in love with Inês of a Galician noble family, the King followed his court’s advice, to maintain the independence of Portugal. It was decided that Inês shall die. This is a story where history meets legend. Where impossible competes with political and mythological issues. This combination makes for an ideal recipe of a Gwerz that hadn’t yet been written. We are so deeply grateful that Stenn Charbonneau felt the same passion for this XIVth century story, and created this beautiful and powerful piece about Inês’ murder. It is actually only a small part of the full story. The tune we used is a traditional gwerz that we had been dying to play for years.

lyrics

E-barzh ar bloavezh 1355
Oa bet lac’het, O! didruez,
Karantez ar Roue
In the year 1355
The King’s beloved one
Has been killed
