GUEST,Stephen R. Lyr Req: camp song about home in tyrol (35) RE: Lyr Req: camp song about home in tyrol 08 Jun 07


OK, dear mudcatters, this thread is accomplishing good things in that we are learning about some Tyrolean and (thank you for the information, Susanne!) steiermärkisch songs.

I have been thinking how to throw some more information into the ring that might conduce to finding the target song. I mentioned that as I remembered it had a Phrygian modality, but that's only half true. The cognatively meaningful verses are Phrygian, but the yodelly refrain is major. As best I can recall it:

so-la ti ti ti-do re re mi re do re-do ti
so-la ti ti ti-do re re mi re do re-do ti

(Short notes are hyphenated, long notes stand alone; only so and la lie below the finalis.)

And the refrain:

mi do so mi-re-do-ti-re so
re ti so fa-mi-re-do-mi so
mi do so mi-re-do-ti-re so
re ti so fa-mi-re do

(Here only so and ti lie below the finalis.

Perhaps someone will recognize the tune, if not the words.

Stephen
