1906KWC Top 10 (was Re: Shameless class plugs)
- Jul 19, 2012The Top 10 survey landed here:
Pastime with Good Company (Attributed to Henry VIII)
Sumer is icumen in (Anonymous)
Alle Psallite (Anonymous)
Ah Robin (Cornysh)
Sing We and Chant It (Morley)
Stella Splendens (Anonymous)
There Were Three Ravens (Ravenscroft)
Belle Qui Tient Ma Vie (Arbeau
Tanzen und Springen (Hassler)
Remember, O Thou Man (Ravenscroft)
"Now is the Month of Maying" also was in there, but two Morley madrigals seemed a bit too much.
That's a pretty good list with wide range of easy to not-so-easy songs, and should keep any of us pretty interested.
I'll work on identifying some good editions, post them somewhere eventually, and bring copies to the war.

Sometimes we would do it again even trying other voice parts. Laugh and celebrate, then off to the next one. Great fun was had by all.

Come to this class and read through the songs to both see what they are and get some experience with them. Packets of music will be available to take home. Handout Fee: $3.00
