Boar's Head Carol


The boar's head in hand bear I
Bedecked with bay and rosemary
I pray you, my masters, be merry
Quot estis in convivio.

Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.
Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.
 
The boar's head, as I understand,
Is the rarest dish in all this land,
Which thus bedecked with a gay garland
Let us servire cantico.

Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.
Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.

Our steward hath provided this
In honor of the King of bliss
Which, on this day to be served is
In Reginensi atrio.

Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.
Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.

The boar's head in hand bear I
Bedecked with bay and rosemary
I pray you, my masters, be merry
Quot estis in convivio.

Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.
Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes domino.
