I TARGET GRADE LEVEL: Grade 7
II MODULES 1-2: Vocal Music: Nationalistic Songs and Love Songs
The Two Classifications of Vocal Music composed by Filipinos – the Nationalistic Songs and Love Songs.
- Marangal na Dalit ng Katagalugan by Julio Nakpil
- Lupang Hinirang by Julian Felipe
Love Songs compositions:
- Kundiman Nasaan Ka Irog by Nicanor Abelardo
- Gaano Ko Ikaw Kamahal by Ernani Cuenco
These songs express the beliefs of a nation about patriotism and love and how a nation places a value on artists’ creations. . A group song and dance performance on these four songs culminates the educational experience and musical elements.
The two representative nationalistic songs, Marangal na Dalit ng Katagalugan (Nakpil) and Lupang Hinirang (Felipe), played very important roles in our history, being iconic representations of our nation’s love of freedom, at this point in time, from the Spanish regime.
On the other hand, Nasaan Ka Irog (Abelardo) Gaano Ko Ikaw Kamahal (Cuenco) are our artists’ creative expressions of love which are valued in our Philippine culture and heritage.
