Britten, Benjamin - A Ceremony of Carols, That younge child

Britten, Benjamin

That yongë child

That yongë child when it gan weep
With song she lullèd him asleep:
That was so sweet a melody
It passèd alle minstrelsy.
The nightingalë sang also:
Her song is hoarse and nought thereto:
Whoso attendeth to her song
And leaveth the first then doth he wrong.
