I've put up the music files for Estrella 2008 KWC. They may be found under the files section of KWChoir, the Yahoo Known World Choir group, or on my own website at 2008 archive/index_08.html (if you have trouble with the URL, just go to, choose the Known World Choir menu and the Estrella 2008 menu item).

A lot of good tunes, fun to sing, many you already know. What are you waiting for - just join us at Estrella and enjoy the music!

  • April is in My Mistress' Face Thomas Morley (1558-1603)
    No concert is complete without Morley. April is in my mistress face, but in her heart... English.

  • Ahi, che quest' occhi miei G.P. da Palestrina (1525-1594)
    Wait, no concert is complete without Palestrina. I mean Morley. I mean both. Italian.

  • The Agincourt Carol Anonymous
    The best known of many songs written soon after the famous Battle of Agincourt in 1415. English.

  • Ce Moys de May Clement Janequin (ca. 1485--1558)
    A fun tune about green dresses, skipping, kissing and other activities. Reprised from last year by popular demand. French.

  • Dindirin Anonymous
    15th century. Some rhythmic adjustments and a twist ending. Polyglot French.

  • Follow Me, Sweet Love and Soul's Delight Michael East (1580-1648)
    One of the great passive-aggressive love songs. English.

  • Now I See Thy Looks Were Feigned Thomas Ford (1580-1648)
    A cautionary madrigal that might be at home in Nashville. English.

  • Pastime with Good Company Henry VIII (1491-1547)
    It's good to be the King. English.

  • Springtime Mantleth Ev'ry Bough Thomas Morley (1558-1603)
    More Morley. You can't have too much Morley. Birds and beasts are of consort on that. English.

  • Toss The Pot Thomas Ravenscroft (1592-1633)
    Just a fun drinking song. English.

Rehearsals are scheduled Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, all from noon till 2:00 PM, all at the Grand Pavilion (except for the rehearsal on Saturday - location will be announced at the War).

Sunday Performance 2:00 at the Grand Pavilion. No clean-up or competition, just a good big venue for us.

Performers will be expected to attend at least two rehearsals to be in the final performance. We've spread them all over the schedule to make it as easy as possible for you to fit them in with all your other Estrella fun. Visit for more information about locations, times and other fun events.
