"I was born in Marylebone, London in 1944, right at the end of the War. My Mother played light-classical pieces on the piano, which also served as the family bomb-shelter during the air raids. I recall her playing with great fondness and still play an arrangement of Schumann's "Im Wunderschonen Monat Mai" on the guitar. Later on, at school, I took music lessons with a patient man named John...

Lyrics (old Castilian)

Song 1:

Enemiga le soy, madre,
a 'quel cavallero yo.
Mal enemiga le só.

En mi contempla y adora
como a Dios que l'es testigo.
Él me tiene por señora,
yo a él por enemigo.
Dos mil vezes le castigo
por lo qu'él no mereçió.
Mal enemiga le só.

En quererme es él de sí
tan enemigo cruel,
como yo enemiga d'él
por ser amiga de mí.
Nunca en cosa pidió "sí"
que no le dixesse...

This video shows Corwen Broch playing a Finnish Jouhikko (pronounced yo-hee-ko) - a bowed lyre family that has three horsehair strings, with the drone string in the middle. It is a type of bowed lyre from Finland and Karelia though it resembles in some ways types of Baltic Psaltery from further east such as the Slav "Gusle".

Neidhart von Reuental (c.1190 - c.1236) and "Sing ein Guldein Hun" performed by Augsburg Early Music Ensemble.
Lyrics (English):
"Sing, my golden cock, I'll give thee grain!"
(at her voice I rejoice)
spoke the pretty maid for whom I sigh.
Thus a dunce's hopes are raised in vain
season through.
Were it true,
no one's spirit then would be as high,
no one else's heart would beat so light.
