- Oct 9, 2006I'm sure that there are lots of period songs.
How's this for lyrics:
Beyond the water dwells my beloved,
Nor can I ever see her a single time,
And all for an arrogant old hag,
Who keeps her ever in chamber closed:
O cantankerous, crazy hag,
Wretched, dirty filthy,
Dragon-faced, enraged hag,
You keep my beloved hidden;
Whether you will or no,
I will have her,
She will have me.
"Dilla da l'aqua"
Francesco Patavino, 1526
Music for Crumhorns, book 1
London Pro Musica LPM MCR1 1981
Sapphira, once known as Blue
