The Coventry Carol


Original Key: A Minor MP3

A gentle, ambient contemporary arrangement of this beloved carol. The sorrowful lyrics show a mother grieving over her child during King Herod's massacre. A quiet, unusual carol for the Christmas season.

ID: #1317


Lullay, thou little tiny child, by, by, lully, lullay.
Lullay, thou little tiny child, by by, lully, lullay.

O sisters, too, how may we do, for to preserve this day.
This poor youngling for whom we sing, by, by, lully, lullay.

Herod the King, in his raging, charged he hath this day,
his men of might, in his own sight, all young children to slay.

That woe is me, poor child for thee! And ever morn and day,
for they parting, neither say nor sing, by, by, lully, lullay.
