Mick Pearce (MCP) Early music song 'pretty bird' (9) RE: Early music song 'pretty bird' 25 Jun 19


John Danyel wrote a lute song called "Thou pretty bird", but it appears only as the 1st three words.

On the other hand John Bartlett wrote a lute song called "A Pretty Duck", which has "A pretty pretty pretty duck, a pretty duck, a pretty pretty duck. A very pretty duck there was..."!

Can't think offhand of so many pretty birds (though Philip my sparrow hath no peer!)
