              遠在中古時代後期.Scarborough是英國商人的一個重要集合地點.
              [史卡保羅市集]並不是我們今日所謂的市集.而是英格蘭.歐洲的商人們進行
              交易的盛事.

              過去的Scarborough是曾經有這樣盛事的港口.
              現在因為逐漸沒落.今日的Scarborough只是一個小鎮而已了.
             

              而在中古時期.這首歌是由不具名的吟遊詩人所唱.
              而且在城鎮之間流動時.歌詞往往會隨之增添.
              所以原作者已經不可考.
             
              這首歌歌詞包含有許多民間的詩句.
              ex:Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
                      香草、鼠尾草、迷迭香與百里香
              算是這首歌中最膾炙人口的.也因此讓這首歌一舉成名.
              到現在仍琅琅上口
             
              歌詞中所透露的故事.
              參照2002年06/07自由時報花編副刊的資料(Melissa撰文):
              歌詞大意是敘述一位被情人拋棄的戰士.
              雖然他不知是什麼原因.
              (也可能是原因太複雜所以刻意省略)
              但還是希望情人能主動回到他身邊.
              戰士還指派給情人許多不可能的任務(笑)
              只要心上人能完成這些事情.
              他就會原諒她.讓她回到身邊來.

♬ (HD) Scarborough Fair ~ Gregorian Chant ~ Sung by Gregorian ~ Created by Leroux

Scarborough Fair was a traditional English fair, and is also a traditional English ballad. It appears to derive from an older, now obscure, Scottish ballad, The Elfin Knight which has been traced as far back as 1670 and may well be earlier. The song tells the tale of a young man, who tells the listener to ask his former lover to perform for him a series of impossible tasks, such as making him a shirt without a seam and then washing it in a dry well, adding that if she completes these tasks he will take her back. Often the song is sung as a duet, with the woman then giving her lover a series of equally impossible tasks, promising to give him his seamless shirt once he has finished. I hope you enjoy my interpretation and outcome of this tale of the two lovers and the Scarborough Fair.

During the late Middle Ages the seaside town of Scarborough was an essential venue for tradesmen from all over England. It was host to a huge 45-day trading event, which was exceptionally long for a fair in those times. Merchants came to it from all areas of England, Norway, Denmark, the Baltic and the Byzantine Empire. Scarborough Fair originated from a charter granted by King Henry III of England on 22 January 1253. The charter, which gave Scarborough many privileges, stated The Burgesses and their heirs forever may have a yearly fayre in the Borough, to continue from the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary until the Feast of St Michael next following.

Naturally, such a large occasion attracted many more than just tradesmen; they needed to be entertained and fed. Therefore large crowds of buyers, sellers and pleasure-seekers attended the fair and goods often being exchanged hands through the barter system.

The arrangement made famous by Simon & Garfunkel's Scarborough Fair originated in the late 20th century. Paul Simon learned it in 1965 in London from Martin Carthy. It was the lead track of the 1966 album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, and was released as a single after being featured on the soundtrack to The Graduate in 1968. The copyright credited only Simon and Garfunkel as the authors, causing ill-feeling on the part of Carthy, who felt the "traditional" source should have been credited. This rift remained until Simon invited Carthy to duet the song with him at a London concert in 2000.

Gregorian chant is the central tradition of Western plainchant, a form of monophonic liturgical chant in Western Christianity that accompanied the celebration of Mass and other ritual services.

Gregorian is a German band which performs Gregorian chant-inspired versions of modern pop and rock songs. Because it features both vocal harmony and instrumental accompaniment, the music cannot be considered true Gregorian chant.
