Oluf Strangesøns Dyst/Joust

FIVE hundred years ago, friends, monks, noble ladies, clerics and scholars were busy putting together colections of music and poetry. They were handwritten affairs, filled with snippets from lullabies to nursery rhymes to proverbs to hymns. In Scandinavia they were full of long stories about horses, deadly duels, cold winter, the forest, sensual midsummer and beautiful women. In Germany they were full of ribald jokes, songs of longing, hymns of personal devotion and exuberant instrumentals.
