Christmas Carols, Catalan

El Noi de la Mare


Do you like Christmas Carols as much as I do? Today is a traditional Christmas Carol from Catalonia. The title translated means The Child of the Mother. And it goes like this:

Què li darem a n'el Noi de la Mare?
Què li darem que li sàpiga bo?
Panses i figues i nous i olives,
Panses i figues i mel i mató,
What shall we give to the Mother's Child?
What shall we give that he will find tasty?
Raisins and figs and nuts and olives,
Raisins and figs and honey and mató.

    1. The Catalan heritage is as old as the people that feel not Spanish but Catalan. It's very pretty, I'm glad you think so too.

  2. I do enjoy Christmas carols but get annoyed when I start hearing them before Thanksgiving and can't get any other music on a radio station. This is a new one I hadn't heard before...lovely! Thanks for sharing, Han.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Glad you enjoyed it, Cat. I agree on the early beginnings of this feast. But as the First Advent had begun yesterday I felt it was appropriate to begin my posting series...

      Smile,
