Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gautier de Dargies (ca. 1170 - ca. 1240) was a trouv re from Dargies. He was one of the most prolific of the early trouv res; possibly twenty-five of his lyrics survive, twenty-two with accompanying melodies, in sixteen separate chansonniers. He was a major influence on contemporary and later trouv res, and one of the most recorded of medieval vernacular composers. Seventeen chansons courtoises can be assigned indubitably to Gautier, fifteen with music, and three more are probably his, all with music. He imported the Occitan genre of the descort into Old French and left behind three descorts with their melodies. He also participated in two jeux partis, but only one with music. His theme everywhere was courtly love.
