Song Lyrics & Tunes for Atlantia at Pennsic

Pennsic has many opportunities to sing and get your bardic on! But you’ve got to prepare!

Her Majesty Thora is a big fan of sing-a-longs, so here is a set of links for you to prepare, print lyric sheets, and listen to someone sing the tune for some classics loved by many.  At least some of these will be sung at the Atlantian Queen’s Bardic Circle at Atlantia Royal Camp on middle Sunday starting at 8:00pm!

These tunes are recommended by Very Experienced Performers as highly likely to rouse the Pennsic spirit for Altlantians!  Use these links to find the recordings to learn the tunes by ear and the lyrics for you to print out and bring with you to bardic circles:

Lyrics to Song of the Waves:

Heave ho, away we go
Rowin’ faster, rowin’ faster
Heave ho, away we go
Atlantia sails to war.

Our King sets eyes on foreign fields
To ever stand and never yield
To bend their knees and break their shields
This day we sail to war

Heave ho, away we go
Rowin’ faster, rowin’ faster
Heave ho, away we go
Atlantia to war.

With Azure Banners now unfurled
Our Thanes take up the challenge hurled
And we prepare to leave this world
Our King must have his War

Heave ho, away we go
Rowin’ faster, rowin’ faster
Heave ho,away we go
Atlantia sails to war.

Longships piled deep and wide
We ride the waves from side to side
No shore can stand or stem the tide
Of Atlantia at War

Heave ho, away we go
Rowin’ faster, rowin’ faster
Heave ho, away we go
Atlantia to war.

Warriors of the Salt and Stone
At battle’s end we stand alone
Upon this field of blood and bone
Our King commands this War

Heave ho, away we go
Rowin’ faster, rowin’ faster
Heave ho, away we go
Atlantia to war.
Lord Odin guide us ‘cross the sea
To fulfill this destiny
Into the arms of Valkyries
Allfather bless this war

Heave ho, away we go
Rowin’ faster, rowin’ faster
Heave ho, away we go
Atlantia to war.

Join voices with the raven’s cry
Swear one last oath to sea and sky
Valhalla’s gates are swinging wide
We’ll see you at the War.

Heave ho, away we go
Rowin’ faster, rowin’ faster
Heave ho, away we go
Atlantia to war.

 

What Really Happened At Pennsic 44

By Lady Sophia the Orange

You never really know what’s going to happen at Pennsic until it does. A lot gets planned, and a lot happens, and the overlap is always an amusing gamble in the end. So here’s some of what really happened in the Performing Arts arena by the time Pennsic 44 was over:

Most performances did get produced according to plan as laid out in this blog post before Pennsic: http://perform.atlantia.sca.org/?p=152 .

Upon arrival at Pennsic, the staff discovered a significant infestation of hornets throughout the Amphitheater requiring a move of all Peace Week activities from the Amphitheater to the Great Hall.  However, reports of our own Lord Richard Wynn’s first solo concert and Lady Scholastica’s Shakespeare Open Mike Night in that space were outstandingly positive!  The commedia dell’ arte rehearsals in that space also found it excellent, so the hornet issue did not get in the way of our fun during Peace Week!

Lord Manus MacDhai and I did perform as planned in i Verdi Confusi’s Saturday night commedia dell’ arte play, but what was not planned was the autographing scene where I experienced a “Pennsic First” of autographing a man’s chest. Tis the joy of improv!

Another commedia thrill that was unplanned was a visit from His Majesty Stephan, the King of Lochac! This gentleman is also a Laurel in the art of Theater, and he enjoyed a day with us in the Iron Commedia session #1 on Friday of Peace Week!  He played Pantalone in the play conceived and produced in one afternoon, and you can see a tiny bit of the production here: https://www.facebook.com/Lara.Coutinho.Orange/videos/vob.100000217895334/1321810187836232/?type=2&theater

Another surprise from the commedia track came when Isabella the Pirate Queen, also serving as the Assistant Director of the Pennsic Commedia All Stars Troupe, broke her arm during the first 5 minutes rehearsing with her new band of pirates. Twenty volunteer pirates were given three days with the Assistant Director to create, learn, and rehearse their parts for the big Thursday night commedia show, but their fearless leader fell prey to the deep, hard mud ruts in the ground around the Amphitheater left after the last rock music event at Cooper’s Lake Campground by tripping over a rut and falling on her wrist. Crazy Pennsic luck being what it is, the Pennsic Commedia All Stars cast happened to include a blacksmithing Laurel who had a working forge back at camp, so the next rehearsal included a custom made hook for our Pirate Queen. Her final costume included a custom ladies’ pirate hook, personalized eye patch, borrowed ducal coronet, and spiffy red Italian gown. Best looking Pirate Queen Pennsic’s ever seen!

Master Efenwealt and Mistress Dervila did, in fact, produce their retelling of the legendary tale “Love Will Return; The Story of Heloise & Abelard” with the new sources and 100+ letters Dervila discovered. What we didn’t know ahead of time was how the various skills of Maîtresse Aénor d’Anjou would add to the beauty of the presentation and how support of indigogo supporters can make a simple Pennsic performance last forever. Watch for the crowdfunded DVD that includes footage from this performance to launch next summer.

Our own Lord Yakov did adjust to unexpected changes in his modern employment schedule and change his originally scheduled performance into a private camp bardic performance that had not been promoted enough for the amazing brilliance it ended up being! About 25 people got to witness Yakov’s telling of a reconstruction of a period collection of stories called “Sefer Hashashuim” (“The Book of Delights”) written by the Jewish physician Joseph Zabara in Seville in about 1200. The collection was originally written in poetic form, with a framing story providing a nested “story-within-a-story” structure similar to that of the Arabian Nights. In reconstructing the collection as a performance, he eliminated the poetic form and somewhat edited and restructured the story to enhance performability. For this reason, it is a reconstruction and re-editing and not an actual translation. This beautiful performance was enjoyed by a small group of lucky Pennsic campers who got the message about rescheduling, and hopefully, Yakov will be able to share it again back home in Atlantia for the rest of us.

And it was not a surprise at all that our dear friend, Margherita Battistina, was successfully elevated to the Order of the Laurel for her accomplishments in the art of European Dance as predicted and planned.  The vigil was lovely, and I enjoyed jumping in at the end, thanks to the efforts of many including Master Solvar, Lady Marion the Red, Baron Lorenzo, Master Stephan, and Lady Evelynn. The elevation ceremony in the dance tent was attended by a magnificent inter-kingdom dance community that testifies to Margherita’s great positive impact on a great many lovers of dance.

A final big surprise on the final Friday of Pennsic, for the final show, the Known World Players enjoyed the thrill of seeing the electric power to Cooper’s Lake Campground go out half an hour before their 8:00pm production of the Merchant of Venice. Seeing the sun set and leaving the stage in darkness, but never questioning the dedication to “The Show Must Go On!”, the KWP troupe, Pennsic Performing Arts staff, and various supporters moved the entire production out into the courtyard and established portable lighting. A combination of tiki torches, a single propane torch, and Manus MacDhai’s camp lantern footlights normally used at the Amphitheater created enough light in the right places for the actors to be seen. The instant teamwork brought to life a magical Shakespeare environment that became beautiful and memorable for all.

So, if you missed Pennsic, or if you missed the many Atlantians performing beautiful, funny, and impressive works of art at Pennsic, find them here at home and ask them for a repeat performance!

Atlantia Elevates A Dance Laurel!

It’s been 16 years since Atlantia recognized a Laurel in the art of European Dance, and we lost that dance leader to the Kingdom of the West many years ago.  While strong leadership has been demonstrated in the art of dance by members of the Atlantian Academy of Dance (http://dance.atlantia.sca.org/), the new Kingdom Deputy Ministers of A&S for Dance – North and South, and numerous dedicated dance practice leaders in local communities, the Order of the Laurel in Atlantia has had few internal resources to draw upon for dance. We were lucky to see Master Issac and Mistress Aidan, Laurels recognized for their expertise in 16th century Italian dance reconstruction, move to our lands in the Barony of Nottinghill Coill from the far reaches of Northshield many years ago, but Atlantia has not recognized one of her own in the art of dance in a very long time… until now.

The arms of the soon to be Mistress Margherita Battistina

Our own Lady Margherita Battistina (aka: Margaret Roe) will be elevated to the Order of the Laurel at Pennsic in recognition of her excellent skill in the art of European Dance. Her vigil will take place across the street from the Dance Tent on Tuesday, August 4th starting at 9:00pm.  (If you wish to bring food, please do not include citrus, corn, soy, milk, pineapple or alcohol.)   Her elevation ceremony will take place during a special session of Atlantia Royal Court at the Dance Tent starting at 9:00pm on Thursday, August 6.

Lady Margherita has been directing the European Dance program at Pennsic for the past three years.  She has also created countless balls, workshops, demos, classes, and practices throughout Atlantia where people have learned to dance since 2008.  Her skills range from direct personal teaching to original writing and publication based on her research. She has taught SCA members, Renaissance Faire actors, and the general public. Her scope covers Italian, English, and French dance and the clothes to go with it.

Dance is not her only skill. Lady Margherita has also taught costuming and made clothes for many fellow Atlantians.  The fruits of her labor can be seen in the wardrobes of numerous Atlantian royalty and nobility.

Lady Margherita’s service also benefits her local community.  She has served as Deputy Chatelaine of her home Shire of Spiaggia Levantina since 2012, and she has served as an officer for the Atlantia Academy of Dance since 2009.

As a community of SCAdians, we are blessed to have such a gem as Margherita Battistina to teach us the art of dance with passion and scholarship.  She is a resource that creates a well-rounded nature to our arts community, and her elevation to the Order of the Laurel is an occasion to celebrate!

Many thanks go to Master Solvar Hammerson for organizing her vigil. For last minute vigil logistics coordination, Margherita asks that you contact her directly at margaretiroe@gmail.com or on site at the Pennsic Dance Tent nearly 100% of the time.  Master Stephan of Cambion is also assisting coordination of snack food for her vigil (If you wish to bring food, please do not include citrus, corn, soy, milk, pineapple or alcohol) and can be reached via lanhamlaw@att.net.

YEA DANCING!!!

By Lady Scholastica Joycors

I started to come to Pennsic just five short years ago and taking classes at University was entertaining and educational but I found that classes in the bardic track were sparse. When THL Lorelei  Skye, the Pennsic University Dean of Performing Arts, asked me to take over the bardic track I thought this would be a good opportunity to increase classes in all three areas of bardic; poetry, storytelling and music and thanks to the many people who heard my call for teachers we have a full track this year.  There for a while I didn’t think it would happen so few people responded but in the last few days of charting all the classes our bucket was overflowing and we were scrambling to find places to put everyone.  Classes begin on Wednesday, July 29 and there is a class/rehearsals going on every hour from 10 AM till 5 every day, which breaks down to 275 spaces filled in performing arts, 60 different bardic classes, in 6 locations. Classes are held in the Performing Arts Tent (PAT), Amphitheatre (AMPI), Practice Arts Performance Tent, Classroom AS9 along with a couple other classrooms and the battlefield. Can you just say Huzzah!

For the definitive description of all the classes, times and places check out these links:

You can sign onto Thing and download a copy of all the classes with descriptions or you can look at the Google Calendars that Lorelei Skye created that you can download to your phone, https://sites.google.com/site/pennsicbbdbbn/calendar

Atlantia has stepped up and several of her bards are showcasing this year:

Pennsic Choir has several of our lofty voices who have been practicing all year just to soothe our souls with their musicality. See the performance on Thursday 8/6 at 6:30pm in the Performing Arts Tent.

Richard Wyn: Thursday 7/30 at 7:30 in the Amphitheatre presents ‘A Bardic in Minature’

Efenwealt Wystle: Sunday 8/2 at 8:00pm in the Performing Arts Tent hold his traditional concert with Mistress Aenor & Monday 8/3 at 6:30pm in the Amphitheatre presents ‘Comedy Music’

Sophia the Orange (who co-runs the Commedia Track): Wednesday 8/5 at 7:00pm presents Iron Commedia

Dervila ni Leanon & Efenwealt Wystle: Tuesday 8/4 in the Performing Arts Tent present ‘Love Will Return – The Story of Heloise & Abelard’

Dervila ni Leanon: Friday 8/7 in the Performing Arts Tent presents ‘A Cycle of Norse Myths’

 

And don’t forget the Atlantia Bardic Circle on Wednesday 8/5 from 7:00 – 9:00 in Atlantia Royal Camp led by our own Kingdom Bard, Johann von Solothurn!

 

I could go on and on about all the great Bardic things going on at Pennsic like all the bardic circles that can be found every night (check out the Bards by Day/Bards by Night book kept at the Mystic Mall) and don’t forget the Bardic Expo on Monday afternoon or the Storytelling Expo on Thursday afternoon…wait, wait there is also the Practice Safe Bardic Safe Practice (which used to be called “The Peerless Bardic Circle”) on Saturday or Bardic Madness or Shakespeare on the Green or the Sing We and Chant It Madrigal Jam. Needless to say there are a plethora of classes, performances, and opportunities to perform so that when you leave Pennsic you will leave with your bardic mug filled to overflowing.

 

Yours in Story and Song,

Lady Scholastica Joycors
