For the sake of a song

Happy (lerri) Song No. 4

CD 3, Track 12

TRACK 12 (Mar88-40-s09) Song 9: Happy (lerri) Song No. 4

Tracks 12-14 were recorded by Marett at the same rag-burning ceremony as tracks 2, 4 and 8. We have identified all three as ‘happy songs’ based on their musical and textual characteristics. All have unglossable and unstable vocable texts, which we do not include here.

Track 12 is in moderate tempo, slower than most happy songs.
