Seriously. These are busy days for me, but if you have time on your hands, please post a Christmas song for us to enjoy. Any questions? I'll get back to you on the weekend.

My version of the 15th century carol Personent Hodie.

Right-click to download
Personent Hodie

Here are the words.


Personent hodie voces puerulae, laudantes iucunde
Qui nobis est natus, summo Deo datus,
Et de virgineo ventre procreatus.

In mundo nascitur, pannis involvitur praesepi ponitur
Stabulo brutorum, rector supernorum.
Perdidit spolia princeps infernorum.

Magi tres venerunt, parvulum inquirunt, parvulum inquirunt,
Stellulam sequendo, ipsum adorando,
Aurum, thus, et myrrham ei offerendo.

Omnes clericuli, pariter pueri, cantent ut angeli:
Advenisti mundo, laudes tibi fundo.
Ideo gloria in excelsis Deo.


[English translation; loose]
Sing aloud on this day! Children all raise the lay. Cheerfully we and they
hasten to adore thee, sent from highest glory,
for us born on this morn of the Virgin Mary.

Now the child newly born, swathing bands him adorn. Manger bed he will not scorn;
ox and ass draw near him. We as Lord revere him,
and the vain powers of hell spoiled of prey now fear him.

From the far Orient, a guiding star wise men sent. To seek him is their intent,
Lord of all creation; we kneel in adoration.
Gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh for their oblation.

All now join him to praise; young and old voices raise on this day of all days;
angel voices ringing, Christmas tidings bringing.
Join we all “Gloria in excelsis” singing

This is one of my favorites and I think the recorder you play fits the song very well. Nice job. I may actually do a version of this later too.

Well that's what happens when Susan is tired.

I wonder what a C12 Aulos would be worth? :D

Is there a web address or do we have to log in by FTP to listen?

Last year we didn't have any direct links for the songs in the Christmas folder and had to go to the ftp folder to listen and download. Is there some way that we could change that this year?

I'm seriously unimpressed! I spent an hour working on that tune this morning and had all kinds of recording problems.

Nice job, Jim. =D>

Thank you ... there were some issues with the first take... let me know what you hear on these:

Hi-Fi: http://ezfolk.com/audio/play.php?mode=s ... g_id=11228

Lo-Fi: http://ezfolk.com/audio/play.php?mode=s ... g_id=11228


I'll leave the first for now - might be cool to compare. If space is an issue, you can kill the first one.

Superb! Much better IMHO. Susan has just walked in and said the same.

BTW, the 'unimpressed' comment was to do with me being unable to record the tune myself this morning. I'm always impressed with Jim's playing.

Thanks to both of you ... it's interesting how you can add things and end up with a cleaner mix ... the piano was way too harsh and up front too, but when I muted it I missed it. It's cool how things 'fit' in different places.

thanks for your feedback!

Thanks, Keith .... but I got the alternate name wrong. #-o

"Christ Child Lullaby" is another tune I was thinking about doing. "Morning Has Broken" is the same tune as "Child in the Manger". That's what I get for not double checking .... :roll:
