Track Name: El Alabado / La Paloma
EL 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 Rancho Grande
The words say: Over at the big ranch where I used to live was a pretty young girl. She would laugh and tell me: “I’m going to make you some pants like the ranch owner wears. I’ll begin making them with wool and I’ll finish them with leather. Don’t ever trust promises, especially promises of love. Because if they give you
pumpkins (reject you), you’ll feel great embarrassment. Pay close attention when the door squeaks. The dead don’t make any noise (old proverb meaning no matter how hard you listen you can’t hear), and their grief
is heavy.”
Track Name: Spanish Is The Loving Tongue
The Spanish words “mi amor, mi corazon” mean “my heart, my love.”
