Subject: March of Cambreadh (sp?)
From: GUEST,Bane Harlock
Date: 15 Jul 02 - 02:09 AM

I'm looking for the lyrics and tune to whis song, I believe it to be called the March of Cambreadh. Appears to be Scottish in Origin, and a song of rebellion. Could possibly be Irish in origin. Any help that anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.

This seems to be the one.

MARCH OF CAMBREADTH
(Music & lyrics by H. Alexander)

Axes flash, broadsword swing,
Shining armour's piercing ring
Horses run with polished shield,
Fight those bastards till they yield
Midnight mare and blood red roan,
Fight to keep this land your own
Sound the horn and call the cry,
How many of them can we make die!

Follow orders as you're told,
Make their yellow blood run cold
Fight until you die or drop,
A force like ours is hard to stop
Close your mind to stress and pain,
Fight till you're no longer sane
Let not one damn cur pass by,
How many of them can we make die!

Guard your women and children well,
Send these bastards back to hell
We'll teach them the ways of war,
They won't come here any more
Use your shield and use your head,
Fight till every one is dead
Raise the flag up to the sky,
How many of them can we make die!

Dawn has broke, the time has come,
Move your feet to a marching drum
We'll win the war and pay the toll,
We'll fight as one in heart and soul
Midnight mare and blood red roan,
Fight to keep this land your own
Sound the horn and call the cry,
How many of them can we make die!

(First verse)

~Masato

Is H Alexander a bit annoyed about something?

I saw her in concert recently, and she talked about hearing from a fan that the lyrics to another of her songs, a cute little thing called "The Happening Frog", scanned into the tune of "The March of Cambreadth". So she took the bit in her teeth and wrote "The Happening Frog of Cambreadth," then designed a tee shirt to go with it. You can see it on her website (search on Heather Alexander, or maybe some technoCatter can do a blue thing). The shirt features several mean-looking cute furry animals.

Here's the site: Heather Alexander

There's an audio sample of the song there. Lyrically, it's maybe just a wee bit over-stated, of the kind of thing that probably appeals mostly to re-enactors (my friend Wülf would love it; he's busy being a Hoplite at the moment), but the arrangement is certainly effective, and saves the song. Ms. Alexander is obviously talented, so it's perhaps a pity that she insists on coming "from out the mists of ancient Celtic forests". Well, we do tend to be a bit blasé about such things over here; the best way of dealing with Celtic Forests, in my experience, is to carry an umbrella and plenty of insect repellant.

You got it, Malcolm; the concert was at a Renaissance Faire, in the middle of a fake Celtic forest. I guess we just don't have enough romance in our lives over here.

By the way, pardon my ignorance, but what's a Hoplite?

An ancient Greek Infantryman. They pop up all over the place nowadays; I'm becoming a little concerned for the structural integrity of the Fabric of Reality, to be frank.

They also had camp-followers called Hoplite Ladies, immortalised in a famous song and fiddle tune.

As many others have said, reality is overrated.

Heather was an SCAer in West Kingdom for a while, and the song is oft used in Oertha for marching the populace in parades as a Call-Response without instruments. It's quite effective.
