    To which medieval composers are you referring?

    I went with Pérotin.
    Machaut is the one I've heard most from, with Pérotin second. I've heard a handful of works by Adam de la Halle, and just a single piece by Moniot d'Arras.

    Machaut obviously has a much greater range, but I have to give the crown to Pérotin because I love Viderunt omnes and Sederunt principes so much.

    Machaut, although it's really just that I'm familiar with more of his works.

    Machaut, for his non-church-music oeuvre. Without it, 'twould be a Machaut-Perotin standoff.
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    I'm not sure.

    The next time I go to my favorite bar in Tampa, I'll ask around.

    Better St. Augustine - depending on deafness and memory qualifications.

    I will check the community bulletin board at my local bank, to see when the next meeting of the "Medieval Composers Appreciation Club" is in session. The notification is usually under the "Corvette Owners Club Association", unless they've decided to move the former, which could cause intense panic in my community.

    Shoot, the troubadour/minstrel music is pulling a big fat zero! I should have expected it, though.

    If you're talking the Provençal music, I enjoy it for the instruments, not so much the singing. I have the impression that the lute was played in medieval Provence, but have never heard a recording.
