Suzi Digby is back, and most happily for us, has generously agreed once again to celebrate Advent with us by sharing her new recording, The Mystery of Christmas.
And as a special treat just for our Millennium fans, she's allowing us to email you a free Advent song every day from Dec 6th through Dec 24th.
DAY FOURTEEN: William Ballett’s Lute Book was published around 1600, and gives us popular pieces such as a Greensleeves setting, “Robin is to the Greenwood gone,” and the marvelous "Sweet was the song the Virgin sang” (this the title: “Lute Book Lullaby”). Thomas Hyde sets the text first rhythmically to illustrate the baby rocking “sweetly on her knee,” but that is “unpredictable interrupted by irregular bar lengths, in order to keep the rocking human rather than mechanical,” Jeremy Summerly suggests.
Also remember that Suzi would like to offer you a copy of her new recording as a free gift if you:
- Join Millennium of Music as a Bronze or higher member with a new membership.
- Upgrade your current membership to Silver or Gold.
- Or give a gift membership for a friend or loved one.
So, apparently, Suzi Digby is Santa Claus! At least for us!
