Please, have a seat and enjoy the performances!
Included on this page will be some historical pieces for reference, pieces that are partially or wholy original to the College members, or other pieces that we really like.
If you have pieces you would like to include here, please contact the webmaster and he will be happy to add them. Any song, poem, story, music, or whatever can be included, as long as it basically fits the criteria of the SCA. Audio and Video recordings are also viable, either as direct storage or as links to YouTube or the like. Additionally, if you want to have your music transcribed, but don't know how to write out music, the webmaster guy Master Arden is good at doing that and more than willing to help. If you send him a recording, through some alchemy he can make sheet music appear! He also has semi-portable recording equipment if people want to try to do a recording themselves as well (a multi-track digital recorder, allowing for more complex stuff if you prefer).

|WARHORNS OF SUMMER
||Original melody and text by Verrix of the MidRealms
||Copyright © 2003 Reid Sisson. This is technically a Mid-Realm rather than an Eastern piece, but posted here for Pennsic.
|WHERE ARE THE DRAGONS
||Original melody and text by "Sons of the Mid Realms"
||I was given no actual copyright information on this, but I will nominally put Copyright 2012 by Sons of the Mid Realms. It is a MidRealms song posted here for Pennsic.
|I AM EASTERN, SO ARE YOU
||Music from Frere Jacques, text by Aneleda Falconbridge maybe?
||"I am Eastern, I am Eastern, So are you, so are you, Let's go beat the (Midrealm), let's go beat the (Midrealm), With a stick, with a stick."
||I take no responsibility for this one - it's all Aneleda's fault.
||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 Provencal, 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.
