Keith & Rusty McNeil California

In 1966 Keith left his comfortable middle management job when he and Rusty decided to spend full time teaching American history through folk song.

Track Name: Salve Regina
The words to this Gregorian Chant say: Hail holy queen, Mother of mercy. Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To you do we send up our sight, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us. And after this, our exile, show us the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Oh clement, oh loving, oh sweet Virgin Mary.
Track Name: Kyrie Eleison
The words say: Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy.
Track Name: Entre Le Boeuf
The words say: Between the donkey and the grey ox sleeps the little son. A thousand divine angels, a thousand seraphim fly around the God of love. In Mary’s arms sleeps the Fruit of Life. On this blessed holy day sleeps the little son.
Track Name: Alabado
The words say: Praised and exalted is the Divine Sacrament, in which God, unseen, nourishes the souls. And praise the Immaculate Conception of the Queen of the Heavens, the Pure Virgin, Mother of the Eternal World.
Track Name: El Cántico Del Alba
The words say: Now comes the dawn, streaking the day with light. Everyone says Ave Maria. Mary was born to console the sinners and to light up the sky.
Track Name: Pedida De La Posada
The words alternate between Saint Joseph and the man of the house. Joseph asks for lodging, and the man of the house, suspicious of them, refuses. Joseph explains that his wife Mary cannot walk, but the man of the house again refuses, and threatens to beat them if they don’t go away. Joseph finally explains that Mary will be the Mother of the Divine World, convincing the man of the house, who apologizes and welcomes them into his home.
