I used to sing this with a choir I used to be in, and it's beautiful sung in 3 or 4-part harmony. But I've lost the words! and didn't get anywhere with googling.

Anyone?

thanks
Sue

Just checked again - there is a site that gives 1.5 verses! but when I sang it, it had 3 or 4 verses...

¡Ay! Linda Amiga
Anonymous (c. 1500)

¡Ay! linda amiga
Que no vuelvo a verte!
¡Cuerpo garrido
Que me lleva la muerte!

No hay amor sin pena,
Pena sin dolor,
Ni dolor tan agudo
Como el del amor.

Levanteme madre
al salir el sol,
fui por los campos verdes
a buscar mi amor.


From somewhere else (same lyrics but some lines are repeated)


Ay linda amiga que no vuelvo a verte,
Cuerpo garrido que me lleva la muerte.
No hay amor sin pena, pena sin dolor,
Ni dolor tan agudo como el del amor
Ni dolor tan agudo como el del amor

Ay linda amiga que no vuelvo a verte,
Cuerpo garrido que me lleva la muerte.
Levanteme madre al salir el sol.
Fui por los campos verdes a buscar mi amor
Fui por los campos verdes a buscar mi amor

(Madrigal, séc.XVI, anónimo) **)

Many thanks Monique, that's great to have those verses again!

Anyone have a 3rd verse?

Seems to have been composed by Luis Milan (1500-1562). Jordi Savall's groups have recorded some of his instrumental music and the odd song. It appears on a couple of CDs. But no luck finding more lyrics.

A very nice (women's quartet) rendition on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M_r_3YV3IU

The info section of this lute clip ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrbW-bsckxE ) contains a singable French "translation", so if you want a longer version...

Luis Milan is well-known among lutenists and classical guitarists; he wrote many pieces in the standard repertoire.

Thanks! although the French version yields no more verses than the Spanish...

Here is the French "translation" you can read with the YouTube video.

Ma douce amie, ô déjà si lointaine,
sans ton amour quelle douleur est la mienne
Pas d'amour sans peine, peine sans douleur,
ni douleur aussi grande que douleur d'amour

Ma douce amie, ô déjà si lointaine,
sans ton amour quelle douleur est la mienne
Me levai, ma mère, dès le point du jour,
allai par la campagne chercher mon amour.
