Thanks, friends, for your quick answer. I have it on a CD with songs of the Mexican Revolution, but my Spanish is less than a poco de poco to decipher it by hearing. I must read it and then muster my Latin knowledge.
On this CD the singers use pelear (to fight) where a rhyme is needed for a verb ending in -ar, like amar.
The title translation should be: Bugle = horn of combat. One must have heard it in the field, at mornings in the tents, rousing fear, anger, and happiness.

Cheers
Wilfried
