about

At this final 3-week teen session of the summer, Village Harmony co-director Patty Cuyler was joined by first-time teachers Bongani Magatyana of Cape Town, South Africa, and David Oliver of Northumberland, England. Bongani led the group in a brilliant set of South African folk and church songs drawn from his own compositions, while David introduced us to some wonderful English mining song and lullaby arrangements and Patty drew from her repertoire of Corsican, Georgian and American traditional music. A delightfully eclectic yet remarkably cohesive program that included gumboot dancing and a contra dance medley during the intermission.

What have we done
to you oh Lord?

What have we done to you, oh Lord?

Quassù sò li trè cuniglii
Corri tù, sè tù ti piglii

O little one,
You don't know how much I love you,
Your beauty,
Your gold necklaces,
Sweet little one.
How long this night is!
Lullaby, lullaby
Your daddy is in the countryside.

I want to climb
Up there on those hills.
There are goats,
Wild sheep* and does.
Up there are three rabbits.
Do run, try to catch them!
Lullaby, lullaby,
Your daddy is in the countryside.
Track Name: Fa-sol-la
While walking out one evening in a little Southern town
I saw some signs upon a fence and looked them up and down
And there among the notices for auctions, sales and cars
Was a poster that read "FA-SOL-LA"

Folks said that in the morning there would be a special sing
For everyone that lived in town, and friends that they might bring
The singers each would have a chance to lead their fav'rite tune
And they would sing all day up in the hall, with pot-luck lunch at noon

And they would sing: FA-LA-SOL
And make the heavens ring like they did so long ago
Their hearts would fill with joy and love to sing in praise of God above
And sing out with a LA-SOL-FA

Next morning I went to the hall, and found a vacant chair
The singers were assembled sitting in a hollow square
A book they called the Sacred Harp was put into my hand
The notes were written all in shapes I could not understand

But they were FA—, FA-LA-SOL
They helped the singers read the music, like so long ago
Triangle, circle, diamond, square, those were the notes that they read there, And made them with a LA-SOL-FA

An old man rose and walked into the center of the square
He called for silence, bowed his head and said a little prayer
He thumbed the pages in his book and called a number out
And he gave the parts their LA-SOL-FA

And they sang FA— SOL— LA—, FA-LA-SOL
Their voices joined in harmony, their faces all aglow
Each singer was a Child of Grace: soprano, alto, tenor, bass
As they sang out their LA-SOL-FA

The singing was so sweet and hard it took my breath away
I sang along as best I could through all that glorious day
From Wondrous Love to Parting Hand we sang them all day long
But I do believe that Show'rs of Blessing was my fav'rite song.
SOL— FA— LA—
He—sends his showers of blessings down, to cheer the plains below
He makes the grass, the mountains crown and corn in valleys grow —

My friends, if you should ever find this world is not your home
You've lost your faith in God or man, and think you're all alone
Or else you've met such happiness that music fills your heart
Whether you are feeling joy or woe, sing from the Sacred Harp

And you just sing (sing): FA-LA-SOL
And join the gospel choir that began so long ago
In city, town or village square you just might find that anywhere
they're singing with a LA-SOL-FA

In—city, town or village square you just might find that anywhere
they're singing with a LA-SOL-FA!
Track Name: Sesivuma
We are singing & dancing, going forward
Dear lord protect us, we'll persevere & move forward
Stay strong, it's gonna be ok, uncle, one day
Track Name: Keep you in peace (encore)
Warm be the sun that shines upon you
Soft be the winds as they breathe on you
Smooth be the roads that rise before you
Keep you in peace till we meet again.

May you have shelter in storm to hide you,
May you have stars in the night to guide you
May you have ever a friend beside you,
Keep you in peace till we meet again.

May you not lack for good bread to feed you,
May you not lack for good hope to speed you,
And for your singing, a heart to heed you,
Keep you in peace till we meet again.

Warm be the sun that shines upon you
Soft be the winds as they breathe on you
Smooth be the roads that rise before you
Keep you in peace till we meet again.
Keep you in peace till we meet again.
