Na Mele O Hawaii Nei: 101 Hawaiian Songs

By Samuel H. Elbert

Description
These 101 songs are all postmissionary and owe their musical origin to missionary hymns. None of them are technically chants but some, such as " 'Alika," "Hole Wai-mea," and "Maika'i Kaua'i," are chants that have been edited and set to music. The songs date from the mid-1850's to 1968—the date of Mary Kawena Pukui's Christmas song translations. The majority are from the time of the monarchy and so are already somewhat venerable. Nearly all are sung often today and are well known to Hawaiian singers. The texts have never before been written consistently with the glottal stops and macrons that make them nearly pronounceable by one not knowing Hawaiian. Many of them have not been translated before, or have been freely adapted rather than translated. Rarely have so many been assembled under one cover.
