We started to learn the Maori Christmas Hymn Te Harinui this evening.
It's quite lovely

  2. Do you perform the haka in front of rival choirs before beginning? Tongues out and slapping elbows and thighs?

  3. Of course the original Maoris knew nothing about The Jesus Myth. They worshipped their ancestors and gods connected with Nature.

    What a lovely Christmas hymn in Maori and English. Ta for sharing it and I hope all in your choir enjoy singing it.

    Long ago when we lived in Louisville, Kentucky, we were able to go to a concert by Ladysmith Black Mambazo and it was electrifying.

    Enjoy!

  6. Lovely. I notice your choir often performs African songs---is this a special interest of the choirmaster's? Is African music especially popular/ loved in Wales. Or perhaps fun to learn and sing?
