Nationalistic Songs and Love Songs

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.

Nationalistic compositions:

  • 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.

these kind of songs should still be sung and played on radios because in this generation, some young filipinos are not proud of the OPM songs .they probably don't even know these because they prefer songs that are sung by international singers. every filipino should appreciate the songs of their own culture for it is sung by really great filipino singers.
