This is a beautiful recording–very soothing.
It almost melts away the stress of the week.
Here are the words for the Three Sephardic Folk Songs. I think the tunes are pretty much now stuck in your heads…:D
La mi madre,
Por este mundo
O madre, me ire.
Rahelica baila, Moxonico canta,
Los ratones godros, Ellos dan las palmas.
Xinanay comio bimbrillo, S’espero’n medio del rio,
Espero que ven ga’l tio, Que le de con el martillo.
Xinanay comio galleta, S’espero’n la camareta,
Espero que vanga L’anetta, Que le de con la galecha.
(I didn’t put in all “Xinanay” ‘s because I know you’ve probably got those memorized already!)
I think these songs will be performed best if they are memorized. I will have words on a sheet you can take home for Easter break. As short as they are, they should be quick to memorize, and if Kathryn keeps translating for us, you’ll know what you are singing! 🙂
I am so pleased with your performance today! Thank you for your hard work and dedication. I am very excited to begin the next set of songs with you! We will need to work hard to get the words down, and there may be a couple of instruments involved…you are going to love these songs.
We will also have Easter music soon. Please remember that you will have a mass Easter Day. Easter break begins the day after, and we will not resume classes until the 9th of April. The girls will have a mass when we get back, and we will be getting ready for our concert on the 20th. The next few weeks will be very busy!
Have a great weekend, get some sun and some rest, and I will see you on Monday! 🙂
