Sample Singing – Time to Say Goodbye

JellSoL modeled how classical singing sounds like.  Collaborating with the Music teacher, both teachers thought that students could relate well with Time to Say Goodbye or Con Te Partiro considering that Marcelito Pomoy, one of the Filipino champions in Got Talent, sang this song.  JellSoL performed three times in front of ninth graders.  The video is a collage of two out of three recordings.  The third one had data privacy issues.  The dubbed audio is a combination of all three performances.

Con Te Partiro was first performed by Andrea Bocelli in 1995.  It is an Italian song with music by Francesco Sartori and lyrics by Lucio Quarantotto.  Here is a copy of the lyrics for your reference:

Quando sono solo
Sogno all’orizzonte
E mancan le parole
Sì lo so che non c’è luce
In una stanza quando manca il sole
Se non ci sei tu con me, con me
Su le finestre
Mostra a tutti il mio cuore
Che hai acceso
Chiudi dentro me
La luce che
Hai incontrato per strada
Time to say goodbye
Paesi che non ho mai
Veduto e vissuto con te
Adesso sì li vivrò
Con te partirò
Su navi per mari
Che, io lo so
No, no, non esistono più
It’s time to say goodbye
Quando sei lontana
Sogno all’orizzonte
E mancan le parole
E io sì lo so
Che sei con me, con me
Tu mia luna tu sei qui con me
Mio sole tu sei qui con me
con me, con me, con me
Time to say goodbye
Paesi che non ho mai
Veduto e vissuto con te
Adesso sì li vivrò
Con te partirò
Su navi per mari
Che, io lo so
No, no, non esistono più
Con te io li rivivrò
Con te partirò
Su navi per mari
Che, io lo so
No, no, non esistono più
Con te io li rivivrò
Con te partirò
No, no, non esistono più
Io con te

The Sound of Music

Published through our YouTube Channel almost five years ago.

The Sound of Music (Lyric Video and Piano Cover by JellSoL)

This piece, the theme song of a classic musical (The Sound of Music), is the first piece I committed to memory.  I still remember how it took me several months to learn it and be able to play the whole piece.  Reading notes was a challenge back then.  The movie is one of the first that I watched as a child and has been one of my favorites.  Several years later, living by myself in a small studio, I was reminded of this reflective song.  Loneliness certainly brings its twin (reminiscence) most of the time.  It was my cousin’s (my big brother) birthday and I thought of the old days when we were with our piano teacher.  I thought he was as lonely to be away from his family as I was away from mine.  That moment was this video.  For duplication plans, I included the lyrics below.

The hills are alive with the sound of music

With songs they have sung for a thousand years.

The hills fill my heart with the sound of music.

My heart wants to sing every song it hears.

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds

That rise from the lake to the trees.

My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies

From a church on a breeze;

To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls

Over stones on its way,

To sing through the night

Like a lark who is learning to pray.

I go to the hills

When my heart is lonely.

I know I will hear

What I’ve heard before.

My heart will be blessed

With the sound of music

And I’ll sing once more.
