Subject: Tune Req: Sephardic songs/ Era Escuro
Hello,
for some time I research on sephardic songs and collect them. I browsed through all sephardic sites and also have Judy Frankel's book and many CD's, which is absolutly great source. But! Cant found anywhere tune to Era Escuro (not lyric, which is possible to found). I was curious if that song has probably some diffrent name, like for example Avram Avinu, which has at least two other diffrent names. Is there any other song book of only "sephardic" songs? I have learnt to sing it only from listening, which is easy, but I would like also to play it ... and ehm... what to say. I am somehow deff when I want to play what I hear... just can't catch it. Some songs goes easy like Espiritu de Dios, but I have problem to catch sephardic songs. There are another two songs I am interested in ... they are more known than first one "El Rey de Francia" and "La Prima vez". Do you know some source or another songbook with sheet music or midi's :-)
