I’ve been promising lists of sets to work on for the Walk for
Hunger and other possible performances next summer. Comments and
suggestions are welcome.
- Billings, By the rivers of Watertown
- Estans assis, aux rives aquatiques
- Gibbons, Silver Swan
- Silver Swan round?
- Dowland, “Me, me and none but me”
- Arcadelt “Il bianco e dolce cigno”
- Possibly the 5-part “Il bianco e dolce cigno”
- Possibly other “Rivers of Babylon settings”. I particularly like
the one we sing in West Gallery to the Walter Scott “Dies Irae”
translation, which was originally published to a Thomas Campian
“Rivers of Babylon”
- Morley, Now is the Month of Maying
- Morley, April is in my Mistress Face
- Dowland, “Clear or Cloudy”
- Maybe Campian, “My love hath vowd hee will forsake mee”
- Possibly Morley “Good Morrow fair ladies of the May”
- I have the impression we’ve run into other stuff about spring and
May celebrations lately — do other people remember better?
- He that will and Alehouse keep
- Let us drink and be merry
- 5 reasons
- He that drinks is immortal
- Tis Women
- I gave her cakes and I gave her ale
- Slaves are they that heap up mountains
- To Anacreon in Heaven
- Quant je boy du vin claret tout tourne
- Vignon, Vignon
- Changeons propos
- Vive la serpe
I have ommitted several rounds that we could pretty easily work up,
so if anyone’s favorites aren’t here, let me know and I’ll add them.
I think at any particular performance, we wouldn’t do all of those,
but it’s good to have that many available.
