Anyone watching the new series "Il Giovane Montalbano" ("The Young Montalbano")on BBC4 at the moment? It's a great series, with a lovely song over the closing credits called "Vuci mia cantannu vai", sung by Olivia Sellerio, and you can hear it sung here.

Thanks, Will.

Lyrics: found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2DZaQ-qqXg


Gira, gira, vota e và, respira a fondo e po',
la vucca to'.
Voce mia cantando vai,
e tu non piangi mai,
e guardandomi negli occhi
vergognosi vuoi,
ca stu tempu
nun passassi mai.
Baci da luntanu che i baci tuoi per me,
nun vitti mai.
È a tia amuri ca' vulia
milli noti rialari.

N'celu 'n ancilu chi sapi 'nduvinari
zocc'aspettu e ancora tu non mi vò rari..
N'celu 'n ancilu chi sapi 'nduvinari
zocc'aspettu e nun veni mai.
Zocc'aspettu e amuri mi darai...

Thanks Maeve - I don't think I'll be attempting a Sicilian accent, but I'm going to try and arrange it as a tenor guitar/guitar duet.

And you will never cry
And looking into my eyes

Kisses from luntanu that your kisses for me
Never victims n/ever
It is tia amuri ca' vulia
Milli you notice anybody.

Thanks for the wonderful video, Will. It's a lovely, silent spring morning here. The redbud is in bloom, but the white blossoms of the crab-apple tree are dying away. Your music added the perfect touch.

I am enjoying the older DVD series, Detective Montalbano.
In Italian but fairly good subtitles. Very true to the novels, excellent photography and presentation.

Bah! Cloth ears, the lot of you! :-)

Here you go:

You turn, you turn, you choose to go,
Take the deepest breath, and so
Your breast heaves, a sight!

My voice can't hold the air -
Tearless, you despair -
Your gaze lingers in the night …

Shame colours your base lust,
Time stops - as it must!
As passion never dies …

But you blow a kiss at me
Which I sadly never see
It never touched my eyes …

You mean so much, my love
I would forsake the Heavens above
To share a thousand nights with you.

No Angel in those skies
Could match your wondrous sighs
No aspect up above, you see,
Could rival your beauty
Or usurp the joy I take from thee.
