I highly recommend a book called "Rounds and Rounds" by Mary Taylor. Almost everything in it is period, mostly from Ravenscroft. It's out of print but you may be able to get it from the library, or Amazon has a few people selling used copies.Best of luck!

I am planning to teach a beginner class on period singing in the round, and am looking for some good sources for songs. Thanks for you help.
- Most of what I have in my booklet is found in these links.
Rounds and Canons:
Facsimilies and some modern editions of Ravenscroft (many rounds) are here:
Canons from the Llibre Vermell:
Sumer is icumen in or Perspice Christicola
modern transcription can be found here:
If the melody line is more than you want to tackle teaching, you can use the Pes
as the round you teach and just let those that already know the melody do that.
Good luck with your class!
