Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: A CAT CATCH (Richard Brown ca. 1710)
From: MMario
Date: 01 Sep 00 - 02:42 PM

From The Catch Book, edited by Paul Hillier

A CAT CATCH
Richard Brown (died 1710)

(1) We cats, when as-sem-bl'd at mid-night to-geth-er
For in-no-cent purr-ing, purr-ing
for in-no-cent purr-ing purr-ing
on moon shin-y wea-ther

(2)If dogs be in ken-nel all fast in their straw
WE march, and we meaw
meaw
meaw
with out scratch or a claw

(3)But if they sur-prize us and put us to flight
We fret, fret and we spit
fret, spit
spit, give a squall
SQUALL
and good night

That's neat MmArio. My husband and I used to sing A Catch on the Midnight Cats by Ravenscroft.

"Ye cats that at midnight spit love at each other.."

I'll wait to hear the midi of this one and then see if I can learn it. Be nice to have some catty catches.

OOPS, I have just been corrected, A Catch on the Midnight Cats is by Michael Wise, 1648 -87. If you want them I can post lyrics later.

A CATCH ON CATS
(Michael Wise - 1685)

Ye cats that at mid-night spit love at each other-er
Who best feel the pangs of a pass-ion-ate lov-er
I ap-peal to your scrat-ches and tat-ter-ed fur
if the busi-ness of love be no more then to purr

Old lad-y Grim-mal-kin with goose-ber-ry eyes
When a kit-ten knew some-thing for why she was wise
You find by ex-per-ience the love fits soon o're
Puss, Puss last not long, but turns to cat whore

Men ride man-y miles cats tread man-y tiles
Both haz-ard both haz-ard their necks in the fray
On-ly cats if the fall from a house or a wall
Leep their feet, mount their tails, mount their tails and a-way

Ye cats that at mid-night spit love at each other-er
Who best feel the pangs of a pass-ion-ate lov-er
I ap-peal to your scrat-ches and tat-ter-ed fur
if the busi-ness of love be no more then to purr

Old lad-y Grim-mal-kin with goose-ber-ry eyes
When a kit-ten knew some-thing for why she was wise
You find by ex-per-ience the love fits soon o're
Puss, Puss last not long, but turns to cat whore

CELIA LEARNING ON THE SPINNET

(John Isum - 1685)

When Ce-lia was learn-ing on the spin-net to play
Her tu-tor stood by her to show her
to show her
to show her
to show her the way

She shook not the note which an-ger'd him much
amd made him
and made him cry Zounds!
'tis a long prick
a long prick
a long prick'd note you touch

Sur-priz'd was the la-dy to hear him com-plain
and said, and said, and said
I will shake it
I will shake it
when I come to't a-gain

They made a match at fart-ing
who should the wa-ger win

Joan lights three can-dle then
and sets them bolt up-right
with the first fart
she blew them out
with the next she gave them light

In comes my La-dy then
with all her might and main
And blew them out

THanks MMario for the music to these. I heard a group called the MadriGALS sing the one about Celia this summer at the Cambridge Millrace Festival and thought it very funny. For those who are reading the words and find them a little strange. It was explained to the audience that when the catch the notes for music were "pricked" onto the page. To "shake" it was to trill it.

Heav'n take the best

and so we shall get rid of them all
To

let each man take his dish
and dirnk, drink, drink till he fall

MMario, you don't have that catch that June Tabor and Maddy Prior did on their 2nd Silly Sisters album, do you?

I think it might be by Purcell too--it starts out:

"I gave her cake and I gave her ale,
and I gave her sack and sherry.
I kissed her once and I kissed her twice
and we were wondrous merry."

I feel a little naive and foolish for asking; probably this is the one everyone already knows; but I'd sure like to be able to sing it with my trio . . . thanks for any help you can give.

Like fools on grief or sad-ness
Let our mon-ney fly

All world-ly care is mad-ness

But wine, wine, wine
wine, wine and good cheer
Will, in spight of our fear
In-spire our hearts with mirth, boys;
The time we live to wine
to wine let us give
Since All, since all must turn to earth, boys

Hand, hand a-bout, hand hand a-bout
Hand, hand a-bout the bowl
The de-light of my soul
And to my hand, to my hand com-mend it
a fig, a fig, for chink
'Twas made to buy drink
And be-fore we go hence we'll spend it.

This collection would prove invaluable for anybody who's doing a play about a bunch of souses and happen to vent their alcohol-induced anger by expressing contempt for women.

I guess that's an improvement over getting mean drunk and hitting one another over the head with the chairs.

MMario --

thanks for these catches and rounds... Just one question: Is there a "catch" (ie double-entendre) in "Ha' we to the other world"? Because it all seems very innocent to me -- is it my naivete? Or *is* it innocent?

Anyway, it gives some background to one of my favorite "Mother Goose" nursery rhymes, which is less innocent -- though not necessarily risque, unless you have that sort of imagination:

The Man in the Moon drinks claret.
But he is a dull Jack-a-Dandy.
If he knew a sheep's head from a carrot,
He would learn to drink cider and brandy!

I wonder if there is a tune to go with this...

There's a little one I learned many years ago in Portland, which was apparently making the rounds of the SCA folks. Presumably one can substitute other scurrilous groups for "Dwarves". If I get the time (ha-ha-ha-ha!) I'll make a NWC and MIDI file for the tune. As with most catches, the key is in the rests.

Hey ho! cried the merry Dwarves - -

I was just searching through Google for rounds and quodibets, and I came across this page:

The Internet Renaissance Band

It has lots of full midis of many interesting-sounding songs... unfortunately, the lyrics are few and far between (which makes it kind of hard to actually sing these songs with friends).

I'm particularly intrigued by a round entitled "Now be thanked the great god Pan" (by that most prolific of writers -- Ann Onymous ;-))... the date given is 1609*. Now it seems to me that the lyrics to this might be wonderfully bawdy, but no lyrics are given. I searched in the Digitrad, but they aren't there, either...

So, does anyone here have them?

*No wonder the list of songs she's written is so long -- how old is she, by now? 3,000 years? ;-)

THE WISEMEN WERE BUT SEVEN -- a round for three voices by William Lawes, mid-17th Century

The wisemen were but seven, ne'er more shall be for me
The Muses were but nine, the worthies three time three
And three merry boys, and three merry boys, and three merry boys are we!

--- And now for my question: I know who the nine Muses are, and I know of three famous wisemen, but who are these seven wisemen, as revered in 17th century England? Any ideas?

Here are the midis for the three parts of the round --

Sad, but this question was not answered here...
"who are these seven wisemen, as revered in 17th century England?"

MMario, what a treasure trove for those of us who love rounds and catches. Do you have one that is my personal favorite, also Ravenscroft?

I lay with an old man all the night,
I turned to him and he to me.
He could not do as well as he might,
Oh, he would, fain, but it would not be.

"I lay with an old man" is in Thomas Ravenscroft: Melismata (1611) (see also modern edition, for midi, pdf & postscript; and partial midi files).

Didn't find this on DT (or in a Google search), so I'll post it here. I learned it (at a Morris Ale --in Colorado, I think) from a woman who said it was written by her music teacher who taught at her school -- so I'm afraid I don't know who wrote it (if anyone does, I'd be interested in knowing, as I put it on a recording & would pay royalties if I knew who they oughta go to).

A Cat Has Paws

A cat has paws (rest) as soft (rest) as gauze (rest)
But when he wars, look out, because a cat has claws
If you have cause (rest) to an(rest)ger yours (rest)
You'd bet-ter pause; you'd better pause and read this clause
A cat has paws (etc)

Am not quite sure how to provide the tune, as I'm not a techie sort, but will try if someone can suggest a method.

Cheers,

YY

If anybody can post hte music for that "Dwarves are Dumb" catch, it would be greatly appreciated. I've had the words to it for the longest time, but can't seem to find the music....

I usually substitute the word Bush for dwarves. It's always funny when people realize what is being said
