When I'm sixty-four - Cando teņa sesenta e catro anos

Some years ago, a few 2nd Bach students recorded the famous song When I'm Sixty-four, by The Beatles.

This course plenty of the activities organised by our EDLG have to do with the passage of time, with ageing/growing old, and the song is sung by a young man to his lover, and is about his plans of growing old together with her. That's why some 2nd Bach students have decided to translate the song which was recorded long ago into Galician language and to subtitle the video.

READING

This song, with its promise “We shall overcome some day,” probably dates back to antebellum days, when slaves sang phrases such as “I’ll be all right someday” as they worked in the fields. Much of their music had roots in African songs brought over during the brutal Middle Passage to the New World. The patterns of call-and-response and repetition provided a sense of community and participation in a hostile and forbidding world, as well as an outlet for ideas about freedom that could not otherwise be voiced.

I’m Not Moving

 On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks got on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.  It was 6 P.M., and she was going home from work.  She took a seat in the back of the bus, behind a sign that said “colored.”1  Mrs. Parks sat in that section because it was the law:  In the southern part of the United States, white people sat in the front of the bus, and black people sat in the back.  Mrs. Parks was African American, so she had to sit in the back of the bus.  That evening, she sat in the first row of the “colored” section.

At each bus stop, more people got on the bus, and the “white” section filled up.  There were no more seats there, so a white man was standing.  The bus driver got up and moved the “colored” sign back one row.  He was making the “white” section bigger.

“You have to move so this man can sit down,” he told Mrs. Parks.

“I’m not moving,” Mrs. Parks said.

“If you don’t move, I’ll call the police,” the bus driver said.

“I’m not moving,” Mrs. Parks said again.

The police came and arrested Mrs. Parks.  When African Americans heard about Mrs. Parks’ arrest, they were angry.  They decided not to ride the buses in Montgomery.  There were 40,000 African American commuters in the city, and for more than a year, they did not ride the buses.  Some people had to walk miles to go to work.  During that year, the buses ran, but they had very few passengers.  The city lost a lot of money.

Sometimes African Americans ”marched” peacefully in the streets–they walked together in big groups.  They marched in Montgomery and in other cities in the South.

In 1956, the United States Supreme Court said that separate sections for blacks and whites on buses were illegal.  African Americans began to ride the buses again, but they didn’t stop marching.  They continued to march because they wanted more changes.  They didn’t want separate restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and schools.  They didn’t want separate restrooms and drinking fountains.  When they marched (and whites often marched with them), they sang.  “We shall overcome,” they sang:  We will succeed.  And they did succeed.

During the next ten years, blacks and whites began using the same buildings, restrooms, and drinking fountains.  All of these changes began when Rosa Parks said, “I’m not moving.”

1 Today we do not use the word “colored.” We use the word “black” or “African American.”

Choirboy using helium (from classicfm.com)

How do you get over the problem of your boy sopranos’ voices breaking? A massive helium balloon, of course. Here’s how it sounds in Allegri’s Miserere...

Choirboys have a pretty tough life. 

For years, they’ve been praised and admired for their beautifully angelic high Cs – but then puberty  comes and...no more high Cs

Luckily, The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge has found a solution for this inconvenience. 

Instead of hiring a soprano to hit the top notes, they’ve discovered that a nice big balloon of helium does the job just as well.

In this stunning performance of Allegri’s ‘Miserere’, a male university student is able to hit a C6 (a soprano C, to you and me) simply by inhaling a gulp of helium from a giant balloon.

Allegri’s ‘Miserere’ was famously transcribed and brought into the public domain by Mozart in 1770. 

The young composer, then aged just 14, supposedly once heard the piece at a concert, returned home and wrote down the whole thing note for note.

In all seriousness, this video was actually filmed as an April Fool’s prank in 2014.

 

COMPLETE:


"High …......…….  ……......... have been part of the choir sound for …….......   ….......…..   …….......…   ………………”. "...…….. a lengthy consultation process, during …....…….we  …....……. that the surgical solution was surprisingly …......….. with the choral scholars, someone in the …......…….   ….......……..  came up with a …....…….    …….......….  ....................-- and now all we …….….. is a very large  ……....….    ……...….    ……......….”

He doesn’t know what a rule is for.

But I know one and one is two

and if this one could be with you,

what a wonderful world this could be.

B22 MONOLOGUES ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AND NATURAL DISASTERS

Watch the video on weather and natural disasters on engvid.com, and do the quiz. Click HERE.

HERE, a text about early warning systems for floods and forest fires in the EU.

Another text:

The world is hot, on fire, and flooding.

Climate change is here.

“Greece is going through an unspeakable tragedy,” said Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, in a televised address to declare three days of national mourning.

This is already Greece’s hottest year on record. Although the last few weeks have been mild and wet, it’s nearly certain that warm weather has played a role in drying out forests throughout Europe, where the number of fires this year is 43 percent above normal. Longer summers, more intense drought, and higher temperatures are all linked to greater fire risk.

Ample evidence links worsening fires with human activity. Greece and much of the Mediterranean region is projected to turn into desert over the next several decades, and there are signs that this shift has already begun. The region’s native trees die off and urban areas expand into neglected forests. Regardless of ignition source — arson or lightning or human carelessness — massive wildfires will become more common as droughts intensify and heat waves get more common. Extreme winds, like those blamed for fanning the flames this week in Greece and during megafires in Portugal last year, can make an already dire situation uncontrollable. Unusual wildfires are sprouting up all over the map. Sweden has called for emergency assistance from the rest of the European Union to help battle massive wildfires burning north of the Arctic Circle. Across the western United States, 50 major wildfires are burning in parts of 14 states, fueled by severe drought.

And then there are the rains. In Laos, after days of downpours, a hydropower dam that was under construction collapsed on Tuesday. Hundreds of people have been reported missing. Higher global temperatures increase the evaporation rate, putting more water vapor in the atmosphere and making extreme downpours more common.

All over the world, heatwaves are getting longer and more intense, the most well-documented and deadliest consequence of our failure to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Celta Vigo v Deportivo: the Galician derby, where rival fans sing together

From: https://www.theguardian.com/football/copa90/2018/mar/23/celta-vigo-deportivo-coruna-galicia-derby-football-liga

Sometimes it can feel as if the only Spanish fixture the wider world really cares about is el Clásico but, in a land where regional identity is fierce and football is king, there are big derbies scattered throughout the country. With that in mind, we set sail for Spain for the fourth series of Derby Days to uncover cultures, stories and rivalries that make up a side of Spanish football you may not have seen before. First up was Celta Vigo v Deportivo La Coruña: two clubs from port cities in the weather-battered north-west.

These two groups of supporters are united by their Galician heritage and language, but divided by football. When Deportivo and Celta meet the two sets of fans sing the Galician anthem together and then descend back into insults. This rivalry is both fraternal and ferocious. Estrella Galicia sponsor both clubs’ shirts so neither group of fans boycotts their beer.

The cities of Vigo and A Coruña may look similar to the outsider but they both have fierce local pride. As the saying goes: “Mientras Vigo trabaja, Coruña relaja.” (“While Vigo works, Coruña relaxes.”) The former city prides itself on industry and fishing, while the latter enjoys a reputation as a cultural hub of food and fashion. But, above all, both consider themselves as Galician first and foremost – defined by the sea, the rain (320 days a year on average) and a sense of otherness a long way from any Spanish stereotypes.

All of these differences are brought together in the Galician derby, the biannual fight for dominance. Football is an obsession here. As one fan put it to us: “In the music, there’s football. There’s football in the sea. In death, there is also football.” The players understand this obsession too as a lot of them are locals. Celta’s top scorer this season, Iago Aspas, is a Galician boy who grew up at the club and Deportivo’s best chance of a goal, Lucas Pérez, was born in A Coruña. They get that this is a unique derby.

THE RATTLIN' BOG

"The Rattlin’ Bog" is an Irish folk song. It is a cumulative song. Since it is a folk song, it has been transmitted over generations orally and aurally so many versions coexist. During a performance, it is typical for the song to increase in speed with each additional verse, almost as a challenge to determine who can sing the lyrics the fastest without getting mixed up.

Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.
Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.

Now in that bog there was a ........,
A rare .........and a rattlin’ .........,
And the ..........in the bog,
And the bog down in the valley-o.

Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.
Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.

Now on that ........there was a ........,
A rare ........and a rattlin’ ..........,
And the ................on the ...........,
And the .............in the bog,
And the bog down in the valley-o.

And so on and on and on.....

UNDER THE SEA - BAIXO O MAR

Sebastian is a red Jamaican crab and major character in Disney’s 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid. He is the "distinguished" court composer for King Triton, and is regularly tasked with watching over his youngest daughter, Princess Ariel.

Sebastian (and a band o fish / sea creatures) sing Under the Sea. The song is a plea by the crab Sebastian imploring Ariel to remain sea-bound, and resist her desire to become a human in order to spend her life with Prince Eric, with whom she has fallen in love. Sebastian warns of the struggles of human life while at the same time expounding the benefits of a care-free life underwater. However, his plea falls on deaf ears, for Ariel leaves before the end of the song.

HERE you have a fill-in-the-gaps activity to be done while watching and listening to the video above.

In addition, we have translated the song into Galician. This is our version in Galician language. First recording HERE.
