A lovely 5-part drinking song from Lassus. Lots of lively and bibulous repetition, overlapping voices, little melodic fragments jumping from voice to voice… All very nicely done.

The only recording I can find is rather an old one, but I’ve selected one of the livelier parts – approximately pages 3-4 of the score here.

About fattoxxon

Who am I? Lover of all sorts of music - classical, medieval, world (anything from Africa), world-classical (Uzbek & Iraqi magam for instance), and virtually anything that won't be on the music charts... Lover of Ronsard's poetry (obviously) and of sonnets in general. Reader of English, French, Latin & other literature. And who is Fattoxxon? An allusion to an Uzbek singer - pronounce it Patahan, with a very plosive 'P' and a throaty 'h', as in 'khan')
