Mediaeval Baebes, A Pocketful of Posies

First new material in six years, and they go for all the traditional nursery rhymes. Surefire sign that the Baebes are all grown up with families of their own now.

The princes of medieval metal have always been consistently great. In their latest, they take the medieval a bit down, push the metal a bit up, and absolutely crush it.

Sabaton, The Great War. The History Version improves further on the great standard version, while the Soundtrack Version is a worthy addition to any tabletop RPG background score.

Mary Lou Williams: "Anima Christi"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvoZk1AQbc8


Soul of Christ be my sanctification
Body of Christ be my salvation
Blood of Christ fill my veins
Water of Christ side wash out my stains

Passion of Christ my comfort be
o good Jesus listen to me
Lord have mercy on me
Help!

In Your wounds I would hide
Never to part from Thy side
Guard me should the foe assail me
Call me when my life fails me.

Bid me to come to Thee above
With Thy saints to sing Thy love
Lord have mercy on me
Lord I'm not worthy that You shouldst
enter under my roof
Say but the word and my soul shall have
been cleansed.

O God by Your name save me
For naughty men have risen up against me
They set not God before their eyes
They have prepared a net for my feet
The fool says in his heart there is no God.
Lord have mercy on me.

The Secret Handel, by Christopher Hogwood on the Clavichord, on YouTube

One track on YouTube I enjoy listening to (I have the performer’s companion pieces The Secret Mozart and The Secret Bach in Apple Music) is The Secret Handel, performed by Christopher Hogwood.  This series consists of the work of Bach, Mozart and in this case Handel performed on the Clavichord, which is one of my favorite instruments (its like a harpsichord but with a quieter, more metallic sound, more variable tuning, and a simpler design, so whereas a piano has one string for each note, a harpsichord might have several, one for each stop, so the total number of strings == the keys on the manuals x the number of stops; clavichords in contrast will typically have around eight strings, which play multiple notes (they are divided into sections that correspond to each key using movable frets).

The thrilling thing about Hogwood’s The Secret (Composer) series is that the piano was just beginning to take over during Mozart’s life; during the life of Handel and Bach, the instrument they would have had at home was certainly a clavichord, and Mozart probably also used one due to their relative cheapness in comparison with the newfangled “Gravicimbalo” or Piano, as we now call it, especially in his youth (when he could not reach the pedals and manuals of an organ unassisted; J.C. Bach, son of Johann Sebastian Bach, tutored the prodigy Mozart and would sit the young boy in his lap so they could play the organ; on his own, Mozart would have had to have used the clavichord.  So these works by Hogwood give us the opportunity to hear the compositions of Handel, Bach and Mozart as the composers would have heard them, when performing them at home during the process of composition, or for friends, or in the rehearsal process.  And the clavichord is such a lovely sounding instrument; Hebert Howells owned one, and wrote pieces for it, plus another clavichord owned by his friend Lambert.

Konsta Jylhä - Peltoniemen Hintrikin surumarssi
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJ0GfgDeVcY

A traditional Central Ostrobothnian (Western Finland) folk song. AFAIK originally played in weddings though I fail to understand why would anyone in their right mind want something this melancholic in their weddings.

It's an appropriate dirge for the death of the single life.  Finns know what's up.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

I do not know if this has already been posted, but it wasn't in the obvious places. I generally do not care for "Heart and Soul" on the BBC World Service, I heard parts of this at 3am on Aug. 23 (I have to go to Syosset NY tomorrow and I hate going to NY; flying gives me nightmares), and I finally listened to all of it last night. I think it was pretty good and worth a listen:

It is entitled "Our Daily Bread" and the location is a monastery in a mountains.

There is also a recent episode about Egyptian Copts and Soccer, but I have not listened to it: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csz4lk

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom
