AnĂșna Sings Michael McGlynn's Arrangement of "The Coventry Carol"


For today's Feast of the Holy Innocents (Childermas), a rendition of the XIVth Century "Coventry Carol" by an ensemble of lovely Irish lasses.
    Lully, lullay, thou little tiny Child,
    Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
    Lullay, thou little tiny Child,
    Bye, bye, lully, lullay.

    O sisters too, how may we do,
    For to preserve this day
    This poor youngling for whom we do sing
    Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
    Herod, the king, in his raging,
    Charged he hath this day
    His men of might, in his own sight,
    All young children to slay.

    That woe is me, poor Child for Thee!
    And ever mourn and sigh,
    For thy parting neither say nor sing,
    Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
