The Hungarian Coat of Arms and
( and traditional songs in midi format)
Hungarian Coat of Arms
Anthem , Magyar Himnusz
(note from Jer: if you have never heard the Magyar Himnusz with orchestra and choir, please listen to it...it's really beautiful!)
A Magyar Himnusz
The Hungarian national anthem
Lyrics: Ferenc Kölcsey (1823)
one of the main instruments in
midi files of traditional
Hungarian folks songs!
|(note: if you find that any of the midis sound strange to you...please know that Hungarian music often sounds discordant to western ears! Jer often says that it sounds like each member is playing a different tune)|
the words to the song "Megyen"
Megyen már a hajnalcsillag lefelé
Az én kedves galambom most megyen hazafelé
Lábán van a csizmája, lakos szárú kis csizma
Rásütött a hajnalcsillag sugára
Morning Star goes already down
My sweetheart is going home now
She has her shining boots on her legs
It is shining in the light of Morning Star
The following is the original poem from which the Magyar Himnusz was taken, in Magyar.
