Well, you could just do a Google search on "Middle English Love songs," which I just did!. You can get lots of lyrics, but if you want the actual music there isn't a great deal around!. During the 11th and 12th Centuries there was no uniform way of writing musical script!.

Every song writer (troubadours, or minstrels) made some scribblings that only they could read!.

"See, dere soule, my sydes blede!." etc!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
