The Boar's Head Carol by Maddy Prior & The Carnival Band
Boar's Head The boar's head in hand bear I,
Bedeck'd with bays and rosemary.
So I pray you, my masters, be merry
Quot estis in convivio
(Translation: As many as are in the feast)

Caput apri defero
(Translation: The boar's head I offer)
Redens laudes Domino
(Translation: Giving praises to the Lord)

The boar's head, as I understand,
Is the rarest dish in all the land,
Which thus bedeck'd with a gay garland
Let us servire cantico.
(Translation: Let us serve with a song)


Our steward hath provided this
In honor of the King of Bliss;
Which on this day to be served is
In Reginesi atrio.
(Translation: In the hall of the Queen)

A modern, chocolate boar's head
