      I think you're so right about the religious songs in period.

      I did a quickie search on Ding, Dong Merrily (which, personally, I love),
      and found that the lyrics were added by GR Woodward (1848-1934). I knew the
      lyrics were added post-period, but, frankly, I wouldn't have guessed it was
      _that_ far out of period. Bummer!

      Subject: [CalontirDance] Reilgious music and dance

      I have a topic I think both musicians and dancers can participate in.
      I love cantigas, and they are easily danced to ..
      However, given what we know abut dance music of the time (all that I can
      think of have secular titles) and the religious practices, I am unsure
      if they would have ever of danced to a religious song in period.
      On the other hand, there is period music which religious words have been
      applied to.(Ding, Dong Merrily on High). I have no idea when these words
      were added.
      Anyone have any thoughts?
