Thread Name: Lyr Req: Gaudete (from Steeleye Span)
Subject: RE: Gaudete - Steeleye Span
Just re-singing through what I wrote, I seem to have been in Church choir mode. To replace missing syllables, imagine an accent over the penultimate letter of each of the last 4 lines, i.e prayéd etc.
That leaves the second line (of the 4) needing a grace note to allow a singer to 'slip over' "with"
