Added Thomas Campian’s Babylon Streams

The Cantabile
Renaissance band
has been doing more Thomas
Campian
lately, and we also have a set of songs that have
something to do with rivers, because we play every year for the Walk for Hunger on the banks
of the Charles River.

There’s a piece called Babylon Streams by Thomas Campian that the West Gallery Quire does.
It was published in the Scottish Psalter in 1615 with words from the
New
Version
of the Metrical psalms. But Bruce Randall usually uses
the words from Walter Scott’s Dies Irae translation, which are very
impressive.

But I thought it would be fun to sing to the Babylon words along
with the Billings
Lamentation over Boston
and the Psaume
CXXXVII
by Paschal de l’Estocart.

So it’s up.
