What Are You Listening To? #3

Recommended Posts

A medieval 14th century german song called "Wer daz Elend bauen wil" performed by the Augsburg ensemble.

translated it would be something like:

Whoever wants to wander through the outland
shall sally forth and be my journeyman
on the ways of Saint James!
He needs two pairs of shoes,
a bowl and a bottle.
A broad-brimmed hat should he have
and don't go without a cloak
richly stitched with leather;
the snow may fall, the rain may fall or the wind may blow,
the air shall not bewet him.
Bag and staff are carried along as well.
He should make sure that he went to confession,
confessed and penanced.
If he comes to the foreign lands,
he can't find any German priest.
