Description
Among the few surviving early English lyrics are the exceptionally beautiful St. Godric Songs ("Crist and St. Marie," "Sainte Marie Virgine Moder," "Sainte Marie Cristes Bur," "Sainte Nocolaes Godes Drud"). Dating from c.1150, they are the earliest known songs in English with musical notation. At a time when only plainchant was customarily recorded in writing, the fact that they were written down at all attests to a belief by the scribes who preserved them that St Godric himself was their author. These and four additional songs ("Worldes Blis Ne Last No Throwe," "Byrd on Brere," "Man Mai Longe Lives Weene," and "Stond Wei, Moder Under Rode") are exquisitely performed here by legendary countertenor Russell Oberlin, along with Seymour Barab on English fretted viol.
