Spanish Rock in the Seventies: Prologue

Here is Vainica Doble’s Christmas single from 1972, which is also going to act as a prologue to a new series about Spain in the seventies. Gloria Van Aerssen died in October this year, her musical partner Carmen Santonja having died 15 years earlier.

Vainica Doble were two women in the male dominated rock world, moreover they were both pushing forty by the time their recording career started to take off in the early seventies. They always followed their own unique vision, and they are exactly the kind of eccentric misfits who will feature heavily in the new series which will start properly in the new year.

NB The Latin chorus translates as ‘Glory to God in the highest’.

EL EVANGELIO SEGÚN SAN LUCAS

ESTRIBILLO:
Hosana, Hosana;
Gloria in excelsis deo

Vamos a Belén 
y veamos lo sucedido
que el señor nos quiere hacer saber.

Iban unos mozos 
y encontraron a María, José y al niño, 
recostado en un pesebre.

Viéndolo conocieron la revelación 
que les había sido hecha,
referente a aquel niño.

ESTRIBILLO

Todos los que lo oyeron 
se admiraron de lo que decían los pastores,
pero María conservaba todas estas palabras,
meditándolas en su corazón.

Y regresaron los pastores alabando a Dios
por todo lo que habían oído y visto,
según les había sido anunciado.

ESTRIBILLO
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST. LUKE

CHORUS:
Hosanna, Hosanna;
Gloria in excelsis Deo 

Let's go to Bethlehem 
And we will see the event
That the Lord would have us know

They were some young people 
And they found Mary, Joseph and the child
Lying in a manger

Seeing it they experienced the revelation 
That had been made for them
Concerning this child 

CHORUS

All those who heard it 
Admired what the shepherds said
But Mary kept all these words
Thinking about them in her heart

And the shepherds returned, praising God
For all they had heard and seen
As it had been revealed to them

CHORUS
*
