An association formed in London in the 14c on the model of earlier puis established in France, for the encouragement of the art of chanson writing and singing. Ballads were particularly popular in the royal court at the time. The members of the Pui were all merchants of London, both English and French. The association had a 'prince' at its head, with the apostolic number of 12 companions, who were elected annually from all brothers of the association. Each year, after the election of the new prince who had written the best chanson of the year, all members processed through the streets of London.
