Thanks to Alex Stoenciu, Tim’s contact whom Nick recently recorded, we can now learn how to pronounce the lyrics of the Romanian folk song, “Coborâi din deal în vale”, which we are to sing together with the youth choir on 29 May. Here are the words in Romanian with a translation, and below are two links to Alex’s recording. The first is spoken at a normal pace, though still a bit slow compared with the sung version, the second is spoken very slowly so that we can get a better idea of the sounds involved.
Here is a You Tube version of the Folk Song (not exactly identical, but enough to give a good idea!)
