Subject: Review: Hop-Tu Naa (Manx Song)
From: Senoufou

Every year around the time of Halloween I love to listen to this little song on Youtube. It's in the Manx language (Isle of Man) sung by schoolchildren (Bunscoill Ghagagh). Most unusual to hear Manx, and the children play percussion instruments too.
Has anyone else come across this? Maybe a more techie person could do a blue clicky-linky thing for me?
That and the Big Red Combine Harvester song make autumn special!

Sorry, that should be 'Bunscoill Ghaegah'.

If you can't manage to do the blue clicky, next best is just to paste the URL into your posting. As you hadn't, I've done a YouTube search, which found several, but I think this is the one you meant.

Wikipedia provides some words.

Oh Richard, well done! That's exactly the song I was referring to.
I'm afraid I have no idea how to 'paste', or what a URL might be.
Thank you for doing that for me.

They were lovely too Monique! Thank you for posting those. Isn't it nice to hear young people singing traditional songs? I like modern 'pop' music too, but it's heartening to see that schools are still promoting the old songs.
I have to add I really like the little animated drawings done by the Manx children.
I suppose as a retired teacher, I rather miss the children having a sing-song. (I used to wheel the old school piano along the corridor to my classroom, and we used Singing Together programmes.)

Senoufou,
You said

It's sometimes striking how what's obvious and old hat to one person is an unfamiliar closed book to another.

Are you familiar with personal messages (PMs) on your personal page here? If so I'll send you an explanation there, as it would be a bit out of place in this thread.

That's so kind of you Richard, but I probably wouldn't manage it. I'm clueless with technology, and just 'post' on here. Half the time I don't even know what all these acronyms stand for (URL, PMS etc)
I'm so very pleased you found the little Manx song though. I do like to hear children singing, especially in their native language!
