Bella Ciao

 

Bella Ciao

Jerry Estes
Three-part mixed and Piano
Originally sung by women who were migrant rice paddy workers in ItalyÆs Valley, this song later became a resistance anthem for the Italian patriots during World War II. The lyrics of this passionate and spirited work tell of a soldier's wish to be buried in the mountains beneath a beautiful flower if he should have to die for liberty. A pronunciation guide is included within the body of the piece, right underneath the Italian lyrics. This is a wonderful choice for multicultural or creative programming.
