Christmas carols: E la don, don Verges Maria
My apologies for not posting a Christmas carol last week. I recently came back from a week in Quebec and I didn't have time to get anything ready for last week.
This week's carol is a Catalan carol that comes from the same collection as "Riu, riu, chiu." The text is a conversation between a shepherd, who has heard the news of the angels, and his companions, who have not.
The refrain means "She is our Lady, our Lady, the Virgin Mary."
I only found one recording of this song, but I think it's worth listening to.
