    Taken from the Child Ballads but unsure how old the ballad is itself. The last two verses are potent and the message is loud and clear as these old folk songs tend to be.

    But I do take issue slightly at the treatment of Diverus for not feeding poor Lazarus. The former is an arsehole no doubt but Hell? Really?



    AS it fell out upon one day,
    Rich Diverus he made a feast,
    And he invited all his friends,
    And gentry of the best.

    And it fell out upon one day,
    Poor Lazarus he was so poor,
    He came and laid him down and down.
    Evn down at Diverus’ door.

    So Lazarus laid him down and down
    Even down at Diverus’ door:
    ‘Some meat, some drink, brother Diverus,
    Do bestow upon the poor.’

    ‘Thou art none of mine, brother Lazarus,
    Lying begging at my door:
    No meat, no drink will I give thee,
    Nor bestow upon the poor.’

    Then Lazarus laid him down and down,
    Even down at Diverus’ wall:
    ‘Some meat, some drink, brother Diverus,
    Or surely starve I shall.

    ‘Thou art none of mine, brother Lazarus,
    Lying begging at my wall;
    No meat, no drink will I give thee,
    And therefore starve thou shall.’

    Then Lazarus laid him down and down,
    Even down at Diverus’ gate:
    ‘Some meat, some drink, brother Diverus,
    For Jesus Christ his sake.’

    ‘Thou art none of mine, brother Lazarus,
    Lying begging at my gate;
    No meat, no drink will I give thee,
    For Jesus Christ his sake.

    Then Diverus sent out his merry men all,
    To whip poor Lazarus away;
    They had not power to whip one whip,
    But threw their whips away.

    Then Diverus sent out his hungry dogs,
    To bite poor Lazarus away;
    They had not power to bite one bite,
    But licked his sores away.

    And it fell out upon one day,
    Poor Lazarus he sickened and died;
    There came two angels out of heaven,
    His soul thereto to guide.

    ‘Rise up, rise up, brother Lazarus,
    And come along with me;
    There is a place prepared in heaven,
    For to sit upon an angel’s knee.’

    And it fell out upon one day
    Rich Diverus he sickened and died;
    There came two serpents out of hell,
    His soul thereto to guide.

    ‘Rise up, rise up, brother Diverus,
    And come along with me;
    There is a place prepared in hell,
    For to sit upon a serpent’s knee.’

    Out of curiosity I will search google to see if Nietzsche had any thing to write on the above bible story as he covered a fair bit of ground in his inquiries.

    Btw. Hawkwood, I'm really impressed by your deep knowledge of the classical music! It just takes you a few tones and you know who's playing*... incredible : D Is it just a life long listening to it that gave you this inside or was there something more to it?

    *even if the guy may be a bit more unfamiliar to the general public

    Anyway, sometimes, when I hear something interesting on D-Dur I go to the internet (since on TV it's just audio, pure radio, no text information), check the name and copy paste it to a special text file. Now I'm listening to some of the stuff I made a note of in the past, one guy that stood out from me was some Czech-German 18th century composer Carl Stamitz - Karel Stamic, I'm listening now to some of his pieces on Youtube, do you happen to know him too, per chance? (I mean, given that you know almost everything that can be known in that aspect xD)

    For real...didn't Hawkwood score really high on a music quiz posted on this forum? He's pretty good at that.

    There was a quiz? But that (him scoring high) wouldn't surprise me at all!

    There was one, I believe.

    Well it's no so much I have a deep knowledge in music it was merely due to the distinct sounding compositions of Loius and François Couperin. I didn't know for sure but I was certain it was french and due to it being a harpsichord piece and in the broken style, I could roughly date it too. So not so much a deep knowledge of music or knowing said piece but educated guess work based on the sound.


    Yes I know Stamitz. I never realized you liked early music. There is a fab podcast called the Early Music Show. It's on BBC R3 if you can get it. I've came upon a lot of further-listening via that show.




    I don't know a lot. In fact I'm bumping into new composers daily in my listening wanders.

    Aw I have to bat this down in all honesty. I did stipulate if that composer quiz was tweaked slightly to the lesser well known composers I would have struggled. It was a quiz of big guns like Shostakovich, Brahms, etc, with only the odd stinker. I think if most take the quiz I'm quite sure someone would beat my score.
