      Greetings Rosina!

      Are you looking for long songs?  Short songs? Specific numbers of parts?  Are you making a songbook?  

      ChoralWiki has many to choose from, and some good ideas may be right here in our File section.  

      Now Is the Month of Maying and Sing We and Chant It might be good ones for your list.

      Happy searching!

      Hi all,

      A friend and I have been talking about starting a local choir for some time, but haven't gotten around to making it happen yet.  I think a good starting point would be to have a local class on period songs every SCAdian should know.  This is different from the KWC top ten that was discussed a couple of years ago, as I am looking for songs that are more likely to spontaneously break out at an event.  This way, folks will have a short list of period songs that they can at least hum along or sing a chorus when they hear it at an event.

      To seed the list, I thought the following songs would be aprropriate for the list:

      Sumer is Icumen in
      Pastime with Good Company
      The Agincourt Carol

      Any other ideas?

      By the way, I may end up altering the list I actually use in favor of songs that are a) easier to learn and b) I can get copies thereof.
