Boar's Head

Boar's Head

The boar's head in hand bear I
Bedecked with bays and rosemary
I pray you, my masters, be merry
Quot estis in convivio
( trans so many as are in the feast)

CHO: Caput apri defero, Reddens laudes domino
( transthe boar's head I bring, giving praises to God)
The boar's head, as I understand,
Is the rarest dish in all this land,
Which thus bedecked with a gay garland
Let us servire cantico.
(trans let us serve with a song)
