Corpus Christi Carol, an English carol from the 15th Century - unfortunately I was beset by synching problems, and my cold hasn't helped! Will redo if I have time. Lulley, lully, lulley, lully, The faucon hath born my mak away. He bare her up, he bare her down, He bare her into an orchard grownde. In that orchard ther was an hall, That was hanged with purpill and pall. And in that hall ther was a bede, Hit was hangid with gold so rede. And yn that bede ther lythe a knyght, His wowndes bledyng day and nyght. By that bedes side ther kneleth a may, And she wepeth both nyght and day. And by that bedes side ther stondith a ston, "Corpus Christi" wretyn theron. [faucon: falcon mak: mate, love bare: bore, carried purpill: purple (the royal color) pall: a funeral pall, a cloth spread over a coffin bede: bed rede: red lythe: lieth, lies wowndes: wounds bledyng: bleeding kneleth: kneeleth, kneels may: maid, maiden wepeth: weepeth, weeps stondith: standeth, stands ston: stone Corpus Christi: body of Christ (Latin) wretyn: written]
