Eble d'Ussel

Eble d'Ussel

Eble or Ebles d'Ussel (also "d'Ussèl" or "d'Uisel"; fl. c. 1200) was a Limousin troubadour, the eldest of three brothers, castellans of the castle of Ussel-sur-Sarzonne, northeast of Ventadorn. His younger brothers were Peire and Gui and he also had a cousin named Elias, all troubadours. Of his corpus only one "tenso", one "partimen" (with Guilhem Ademar), and a "cobla" survive. The only sources for his life, besides his own songs, are the "vida" of his brother Gui and a document recording the donation of land to the abbey of Bonaigue by two brothers Guido and Eblo Usseli. [Aubrey, Elizabeth. "The Music of the Troubadours" (Indiana University Press, 1996), p. 16. ISBN 0 253 21389 4.] According to Gui's "vida", Eble composed "bad "tensos". ["The Vidas of the Troubadours", ed. and trans. Margarita Egan (New York: Garland, 1984), p. 44. ISBN 0 8240 9437 9.]

The complete works of the four relations of Ussel, including Eble, were first compiled in one volume by J. Audiau as "Les poésies des quatre troubadours d'Ussel" (Paris, Delagrave, 1922). They are all available online at [http://www.trobar.org/troubadours/ussel/ trobar.org] .
