Joculatores Upsaliensis - "Skogen, Flickan och Flaskan" (Woods, Women and Wine)
The Finnish student Theodoricus Petri published in 1582 "Piae Cantiones" as studying material for young Finnish and Swedish students. The themes are mainly sacred and morally edifying songs and hymns, but also includes a few ironic ones about the excellence of scholastic life, and two songs to Spring. It is one of the earliest printed school song-books in existence. A number of songs, including sorne of the very oldest, were apparently "imported" by the highly cosmopolitan scholars of the time.
1 - Personent hodie (00:00 - 02:02) : "Let Songs of Praise Resound Today".
2 - Omnis mundus iucundetur (02:08 - 03:07) : Celebration of Christ's birth
3 - Verbum caro factum est (03:15 - 05:53) : "The Word is become Flesh through the Virgin Mary".
4 - Gaudete (06:00 - 07:33) : Rejocing to Christ's birth
5 - In stadio laboris (07:40 - 08:50) : teaching on acceptance of one's position in society.
6 - Tempus adest floridum (08:58 - 10:45) : "Now is the time of flowers" which became in England a Christmas carol.
