For Honor of Queen Geneviere
Text: Arden of Icombe. Music: variant of Machaut’s Comment Qua Moy. Recorded by Paul Butler (all parts) Written by Arden of Icombe as commission to King Kelson for his Queen. The melody is a tweaked version of Machaut’s Comment Qua Moy for the chorus, the verse is more heavily rewritten. Copyright reserved, music and text by Paul Butler. Open use in SCA.
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.
