Description

For SATB Choir. Really, who doesn't love a new "Adam Lay Ybounden?" It's the medieval text beautifully set by Dr. Lehman. Perfect for your Lessons and Carols service (Advent or Christmas), or whenever the Genesis scripture comes up in the lectionary.

Adam lay ybounden, bounden in a bond,
Four thousand winter thought he not too long;
And all was for an apple, and apple that he took,
As clerkes finden written in their book.
Ne had the apple taken been, the apple taken been,
Ne had never Our Lady ybeen heavene Queen.
Blessed be the time that apple taken was:
Therfore we moun singen: Deo Gratias.
