Unto the Bards of the Known Worlde.
For most of the days of the Middle Kingdom, our Peers have Served the
people by putting themselves up as examples of what Honor and Chivalry
could be; even unto having their humanity, and their faux pas revealed
unto the majority of the populace. Through song and prose their Peers
imposed the gentle consequences and praised what was admired; our
Royal's Honor displayed by laughing with the people.
A web site is being created for the purpose of sharing the songs,
stories and poetry from every Kingdom, that have shaped and continue
to help shape the SCA. While any form will be gratefully accepted,
we desire to provide audio renditions so tune, tempo and words can be
shared. We are asking for musical notation, where possible, and words
along with a history of what was / is occurring to inspire the piece.
Please include author, dates, etc.. If you sing it, sing it to your
computer and share it.
Please send contributions to <batujin at monmouth.com> in uncompressed
or MP3 form.
We hope this will be a source for words and tunes of the songs sung
around campfires and in front of Kings; a source for all bards to
understand and be able to share the history, so what is / was good
will be perpetuated and what was ill, will be learned from and maybe
Together we continue to "Recreate the Middle Ages, the way they could
