The Joy of Christmas: Boar's Head Carol

Something a little different. A 15th century English carol


1. The boar's head in hand bear I, Bedecked with bays and rosemary, And I pray you, my masters, be merry, Quot estis in convivio.


Refrain:Caput apri defero,Reddens laudes Domino.


2. The boar's head, as I understand, Is the bravest dish in all the land, Which, thus bedecked with a gay garland, Let us servire cantico.(Refrain:)


3. Our steward hath provided this, in honour of the King of bliss, which on this day to be servèd is in Reginensi Atrio.(Refrain:)
