Maken Melodye: #whanthataprilleday

by Mary Kate Hurley

As you have no doubt noticed, the twitterverse and blogosphere are both alive with melodye today.  Following Geoffrey Chaucer's request that we make April 1 "Whan That Aprille" Day, lovers of old languages have come together to make them sing again.  Find it under #whanthataprilleday on Twitter or Facebook!

To celebrate the occasion, In The Middle made this little recording featuring Latin, Middle English, and Old English.  And owls.

Maken Melodye, dear readers, and enjoy this first true day of spring!

Ooh! I had forgotten about ITM and this post brought me back. But sadly there was no link to the #whanthataprill goodness. :(. iPad issue?
