Posting Song Sheet - "El Suenyo de la Hija del Rey"


I am posting my transcription of a Sephardic Jewish melody, “El Suenyo de al Hija del Rey.” It is a short and simple melody, but quite beautiful, IMHO. It is associated with the Jewish communities of Salonika/Thessaloniki in Greece and Smyrna/Izmir in Turkey.

Some of the sources describe the song as an adaptation of a Greek ballad.

Here are two sample recordings:

Savina Yannatou: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtHV9PtKUSE

Françoise Atlan - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAFtWUUDWYw

Ladino lyrics and English translation here:

Enjoy!

Peace out,
“Udi” John

I notice an error in my manuscript. The first two notes win the 3rd bar of the song should be A - B flat (not G - A). I will correct the manucript and re-post.

Thx,
J

Finally getting around to re-posting the corrected song sheet. I will post a separate sheet with the lyrics and translations. Enjoy!

Best,
