Nonsuch, or A la Mode de France?

You should provide more information. Nonesuch is a french baroque dance. Therefore: no lyrics.

Hi,

Here is a web site that has a MIDI of Nonesuch. I thought Nonesuch was an English country dance. It's a short, modal tune.

It's practically the same tune as 'A la Mode de France', a song of which title is the Percy folio MS. But Nonesuch is not a unique title, it's even a record label. Without something more to go on there's no answer to the question.

Richard Thompson plays the English Country Dance tune "Nonesuch" on his Strict Tempo album. Bare Necessities does the same tune on their "Take a Dance" recording. Bare Necessities also plays it in its traditional minor befor going to the major "a la mode de France". The Barnes Book of English Dance has it notated both ways. I would be happy to send along a MIDI file, but I don't know how to post it here. If you want, send me your e-mail address and I can send it directly to you.

I believe there is also a song, Nonesuch, in the musical "Big River."

And she shall bring the birds in spring
And dance among the flowers
In summer's heat her kiss is sweet
she sings in leafy bowers
She cuts the corn and harvests the grain
when the fruits of fall surround us
When days grow old in winter's cold
She draws her cloak around her

This the one you're looking for? I was always told it was a 16th century English country dance tune.
