28 december Onnozele kinderen – Coventry Carol

Op het feest van de Onschuldige of onnozele kinderen zingen Isabella Wijnberg, Peter van Asselt en Bram Verheijen de Coventry Carol.

Coventry Carol

Lully, lulla, thow little tiny child,
Bey bey, lully, lullay.
thou little tiny child,
Bey bey, lully, lullay.

O sisters too, how may we do
for to preserve this day
this poor youngling for whom we sing,
“Bye bye, lully, lullay”?

Herod the king, in his raging,
chargèd 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 may
for thy parting neither say nor sing,
“Bye bye, lully, lullay.”

16e eeuwse Engelse Christmas Carol uit de ‘Coventry Mystery Plays’
