Daithi Origins: Earliest known English folk song (83* d) RE: Origins: Earliest known English folk song 26 Jan 04

I've also come across a mediaeval tradition - the name of which escapes me for the nonce - in which secular words are sung to a religious song AT THE SAME TIME, to provide a kind of harmony/counterpoint. These are often in Middle English and may be the origins of some "folk" songs, building on an earlier religious theme.
