fyi ‘satire’ isn’t just ‘hyperbolic exaggeration of the same shit we usually see with a disclaimer that it’s different.’ There actually has to be, like, an element of condemnation in its thesis.
It’s not ironic if it actively celebrates what it’s condemning.

And touched my limbs
It wasn’t difficult
To pull me from myself again

Sumer is icumen in
Composed in 1250, probably in Reading, England, the rota, or round, Sumer is icumen in, also known as Summer Canon, the only known six part medieval polyphony that was composed before the fifteenth century. The manuscript that contains this song also contains medical texts and recipes and a glossary of herbs.
The main text, written in middle English, is a celebration of spring. The Latin text (not sung in the video), written in the red text, is a sacred text, Perspice Christicola, that was probably added to make this piece suitable for the Latin style polyphony that it is written in. This song is the earliest know work that has both secular and sacred text is written together to the same music.
Even though the song is written in English, because the song is written in such a complex style, it is hard to imagine that it was performed by anyone other than those who have studied church polyphony. The song, written in six vocal parts, which was unheard of at the time. The most vocal parts that most songs had at this time four.
The piece uses two forms that were common at in England at the time: the rota and the rondellus.
The bottom two voices form the pes, or the foot, of the song. They create a small rondellus which is a form in which the voices begin together and then exchange melodies. This also known as cross voicing. The pes is repeated throughout the piece, forming the harmonic foundation of the song.
Above the pes, two to four voices join in a rota, or round, at the unison. They first sing in unison with the pes then repeat with each voice entering at different times creating the round.
Even though the song is written for six voices, there are many places in the song in which the voices are sung unison and no more the four voices sound.
Sumer is icumin in is only known from the manuscript above. The text to the right is instructions written in Latin as to how the round should be performed. The cross above the first line is where each voice enters in the round and the pes is written on the bottom two lines in left corner of the page.
