Cantares de SefaradI (SMR Bresler Collection)

Piso oro, piso plata
Por las calles de su dama
Peinando 'stava la reina
Odeja ki anitani
Estávase la mora
Arvolikos d'almendra - Ia salió de la mar la galana - Una matika de ruda
Tres ijas tiene el rei
Bibaruenya
En la mar ai una torre
Kien supiense i entendiense
Kuando el rei Nimrod
A la una nasi io
Tres ermanikas eran
Siete fijos tiene Hanna
