Trad Tuesday: Sumer is icumen in sung by Lumina Vocal Ensemble



Sumer is icumen in is a medieval song from the 13th century. It is usually song as a round.
It's meaning is that Summer is Coming In or Summer has arrived.

It has been sung by many groups, often choirs or madrigal singers. Richard Thompson also has a version, but I chose this lovely selection by the Lumina Vocal Ensemble.
