Adam Lay Ybounden (2011)

Adam Lay Ybounden - Artwork

Our choral settings of the traditional 15th century poem most often heard after the first lesson from the Christmas Lessons and Carols service.

Adam lay ybounden, bounden in a bond,
Four thousand winter thoughte he not too long;
And al was for an apple, and apple that he took,
As clerkes finden writen, writen in hire book.
Ne hadde the apple taken been, the apple taken been,
Ne hadde nevere Oure Lady ybeen hevene Queen.
Blessed be the time that apple taken was:
Therfore we mown singen Deo Gratias.
