I found this recording on my mac today and I thought you might like to hear it. Its my own voice multitracked. I was in a performance of Twelfth Night some years ago and this one of the incidental songs which Sir Toby Belch, Sir Andrew Aguecheek and Feste sing in a night of drunken revelry. Its a simple catch (a sort of round – think ‘row row row your boat’) by Thomas Ravenscroft, and is almost contemporary with Twelfth Night. Ravenscroft wrote quite a bit of music to the songs in Shakespeare’s plays, but they very seldom are performed with the plays. They are not masterworks but are quite pretty.
I recorded it in about 10 mins while my wife was gossiping on the phone, so don’t judge me too harshly!
