c. 1500
Discussion: 

A very silly Spanish song about a goose-herd who whistles to his goslings because he thinks they're oxen.

Sound: 

Computer-generated sound files to help in learning the tunes; in F

Composer: 
anon.
Sheet Music: 

In "C" - starts on D (we usually sing it here or a tone higher)

  • Sheet music for soprano/alto and bass voices (pdf)(lilypond)

In "F" - starts on G, has B-flat

  • Sheet music arranged for soprano, alto and tenor/bass voice (pdf)
  • Sheet music, transposed for B-flat instruments (e.g. trumpet) (pdf)

Correction: in the music above the third line, third bar, fourth note should be G (same as the note before it) not F (A instead of G in the trumpet version).
