Dawn Song

Text: Bertran D’Alamano (1230-1260), Music: 13th Cent. Anon Motet. Recorded on “Of Dyverse Mynstralsye” by Paul Butler. Combined the text of Bertran D’Alamano with an anonymous 13th century liturgical motet, slightly modified to match the text, to create a period style dawn song. The original was in Provençal, the translation is by Willard Trask. I chose to do it in English because I think the words are important to understand for the effect of the song.
