Translation:

Love is not the thing of recent times, but it has been passed down by the ancestors

From the land comes the well-being of the people which has been passed down by the ancestors

Faith, hope, and love have been passed down by the ancestors

Program Notes

I discovered this beautiful and powerful Maori song in a collection of world music songs. I was moved by the text, a universal theme that speaks of love, life, faith, and hope being nothing new, but handed down from our ancestors. And I love the singing style; not only lyric and heartfelt, but also rhythmic, powerful, and insistent—a style that allows male singers a full range of expression.

Brian Tate
