301Estrella War Song List
- Jan 31, 2006I apologize for how long this has taken, but modern life has been keeping me
very occupied. I've published the song list for Estrella '06. You can find
it at www.donharrington.net
Anonymous - rousing 13th Century trio that goes well with bells and drums.
The Agincourt Carol
Anonymous - The best known of many songs written soon after the famous
Battle of Agincourt in 1415. English.
A Solis Ortus Cardine
Gilles Binchois (c. 1400 - 1460). The Gregorian hymn melody is in the middle
part of this trio. Latin.
Anonymous - 15th century. Some rhythmic adjustments and a twist ending.
Ce Moys de May
Clement Janequin (ca. 1485--1558). A fun tune about green dresses, skipping,
kissing and other activities. Reprised from last year by popular demand.
O Bone Jesu
Originally ascribed to Palestrina, now accorded to Marco Antonio Ingegneri
(1547-1592). Beautiful harmonies in a very Palestrina-like setting. Latin.
Matona Mia Cara
Orlando di Lasso (1532-1594). Another song about love (aren't they all?)
with some onomatopoeia thrown in. Polyglot Italian.
Fire Fire My Heart
Thomas Morley (1558-1603). We said last year that we would always include a
Morley tune, so here it is. Based on a 3-part arrangement for SSA, to give
the female voices a chance to shine. English.
Non Nobis Domine
Originally ascribed to William Byrd (1539�1623) but that is in contention. A
simple and moving contrapuntal tune. Latin.
Toss The Pot
Thomas Ravenscroft (1592-1633). Just a fun drinking song. English.
