"I despullant, de dia, les hortes i els jardins,/ en premi de les teves volences sobiranes,/ tos temples ornaria de flamejants magranes/ que, ben ferides, llencen un xàfec de robins".

Els fruits saborosos.
Josep Carner.

I cantarem pel Nadal (XIII): "Coventry Carol"



Ontinyent, a diumenge vint-i-cinc de desembre de 2016. Nadal.

Un cant anglés del segle XVI que m'adore...


Coventry Carol

Lullay, lullay
My little tiny child
By-by, lullay, lullay

Lullay, lullay
My little tiny child
By-by, lullay, lullay

Oh, sisters two
How may we do
For to preserve this day?

This poor youngling
Of whom we do sing
By-by, lullay, lullay

Herod the King
In his raging
Charged he hath this day

His men of might
In his own sight
All children young to slay

Then woe is me
Poor child for thee
And ever mourn and say

For thy parting
Nor say nor sing
By-by, lullay, lullay

Lullay, lullay
My little tiny child
By-by, lullay, lullay

Lullay, lullay
My little tiny child

By-by, lullay, lullay.
