An Marol Ngan Alijandria [The Sampaguita and the Rose] (SATB)

$5.00

“An Marol Ngan Alijandria” (The Sampaguita and the Rose) is an updated version of the same music previously presented in the first Koro Leyteño publication. This version was used as a contest piece during the 2019 Karantahay Choral Competition. It was performed by the Philippine Madrigal Singers on June 28, 2018, in Tacloban City and is now part of the choral repertoire of the Sinirangan Chamber Singers. 

According to the Leyte-Samar Studies Journal (Vol. 2, No. 2, 1968) of the Divine Word University, the song originally consists of three verses. Verses 1 and 2 were written by Iluminado Lucente while verse 3 is the folk song version. It is Lucente’s verses which have been used for this collection because these verses are more poetic and of fuller imagery. They are often heard and performed in public. In these verses, the marol (sampaguita) and the alijandria (rose) symbolize two types of women. While the marol represents the timid, demure, traditional, reserved, or conservative woman, the alijandria represents the opposite—adventurous, aggressive, cunning, and deceiving.
