Descort

The descort or descortz is a subgenre of Occitan lyric poetry used by the troubadours. It is a song heavily discordant in verse form (with unusual metric structures and irregular rhymes) and/or feeling and often used to express disagreement. It was invented by Garin d'Apchier when he wrote Quan foill'e flors reverdezis. Gautier de Dargies imported the descort into Old French and wrote and composed three.
