CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Coventry Carol Words from the Pageant of the Shearmen and Tailors (15th cent); music arranged
adapted by Loreena McKennitt
Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child
By by, lully, lullay, thou little tiny child
By by, lully lullay
O sisters too, how may we do
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling
For whom we do sing
By by, lully lullay?
Herod, the king
In his raging
Charg?d 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 morn and day,
For thy parting
Neither say nor sing
By by, lully lullay!
