GUEST,Annraoi Lyr Req: Sephardic Songs (22) RE: Lyr Req: Sephardic Songs 01 Jul 00


Thanks, Alice, having corrected your spelling of "Zemerl" I hoisted myself with my own petard and proceeded to misspell my own name !! Ayelet, we have already been in contact through another Traditional Music list. Thanks to you for all your help No doubt I'll be calling on you again. The Zemerl site is well worth a visit, especially as it provides some sound clips. Very interesting as there are two versions of songs which I already know: "Los Bilbilikos" and "La Mar", which is the one with the very intense romantic images which Andy mentioned. It has another very striking image which describes the wishes of the young man to be a fisherman if the sea were of milk and to catch in his nets all his pain (of love, of course, the sweetest of pains which none of us would ever wish to forego.)Very striking images in very simple language - very powerful and intense. Keep this thread going. I feel there is a lot more info. lurking out there. Where is Philippa ? Annraoi
