My grandson would still be young for a children's choir since he is too
young to read, unless he could hear a recording of the selections long
before Pennsic. He already sings. I would guess at any age, children's
choir rehearsals would have to be short, and the children would have to
hear the music before Pennsic. The first year will be the hardest. I
think it is a great idea, but it will have to be coordinated with all
the other children's activities.

L'homme, l'homme, l'homme armé,
L'homme armé doibt on doubter, doibt on doubter.
On a fait partout crier,
Que chascun se viengne armer
D'un haubregon de fer.
The man, the man, the armed man,
The armed man
The armed man should be feared, should be feared.
Everywhere it has been proclaimed
That each man shall arm himself
With a coat of iron mail.
