As with the royal monastery of Brou conceived as a loving memorial to her husband Philibert, who died tragicaly young, Margaret of Austria saw the sumptuously illuminated chansonniers (collections os songs) she compiled as intimate diaries in which she could give free rein to her sighs and 'regrets'. This higly cultivated princess assembled a collection of polyphonic pieces by the fines Franco-Flemish composeres which perfectly mirrored her inmost emotions.
