Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Richard Thompson “Sumer Is Icumen In”

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

Someone asked British singer-songwriter Richard Thompson, among others, what he considered to be the ten best popular songs of the last one thousand years. To what was apparently their shock and dismay, he told them. It included this medieval English rota of the mid-13th century, just in time for May Day, and also known as "The Cuckoo Song." Here it is performed with the able assistance of Judith Owen and Debra Dobkin.
