    While trying to identify “Pokarekare Ana” in HOSPITAL PLAYLIST ep. 3, I came across a bit of Polynesian magic that had me jumping up and down. Some of the most amazing polyphonic music I’ve ever heard has been sung by church choirs and groups of islanders scattered across the Pacific – and wherever Sacred Harp singers gather. 😉

    It looks to me as if Te Hatea is singing it as the Alleluia at Mass as the candles on the altar are lit. The harmonies and wall of sound in this piece blow me away. As does the Maori version of “How Great Thou Art” that follows it. I used to work as a radio operator at a station in Honolulu. One of the programs that aired during my Saturday 4–11PM shift was a sermon by a Samoan pastor. I loved the hymn that he opened with. Alas, I never thought to jot down its name.

    “Hareruia”
    Maori lyrics by Rev. Te Hira Paenga
    (“Hallelujah” original words and music by Leonard Cohen)

    Ka koingo ka mahara
    Ki te mauri o te Atua
    E te kamaka e te kaiwhakaora
    Ka hahana te Manawa
    Ki te ihi karanga ranga
    Kei toku Atua e Hareruia

    Hareruia, hareruia, hareruia,
    hareruia

    Thanks to R Hohaia 3 years ago (2017) for posting the Maori lyrics in the comments.

    Here’s how Google Translate renders them:

    You will remember
    To the essence of God
    O Rock and Savior
    Manawa rises [Manawa = breath or heart; it could be related to “mana.”]
    To urge to call a party
    My God is Praised to the Lord

    Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,
    hallelujah

    Background on the Maori version. Check out the Facebook link at the end of the article for the middle-schoolers’ performance for Prime Minister John Key:

    Lyrics:

    The rain’s wind is hitting the sea.
    When things calm down
    I wonder if you will come
    crossing that sea.
    Sparking in the night,
    all the stars in the sky are lovely.
    Your lovely gaze
    becomes even more beautiful.
    only you
    waiting only for you
    forever my love
    waiting only for you
    only you
    waiting only for you
    forever my love
    waiting only for you
    sigh

    Mahalo nui loa for the translation, TheLeahacer. 😉

    This version of the music video leaves out the Maori bits. I thought I was hallucinating them until I realized this one is missing the introduction.

The title should actually be transliterated as “Aroha.”

    Picky linguistic note: “Aroha” is the Maori cognate of Hawaiian “Aloha.”

    But why Maori? Because this version of the video opens with a Maori haka performed in traditional garb, then segues into Dame Kiri Te Kanawa singing “Pokarekare Ana,” a love song that dates back to the start of WWI (1914). Interestingly, “Pokarekare Ana” was introduced to Korea by New Zealand troops during the Korean War. The Korean version is known as “Yeonga.”

    A treasure trove of information, with the social history of the song, sheet music with guitar chords, and lyrics in numerous languages, including Korean hangeul and romanization. And at least 6 renditions into English.

    @31:00, a string quartet plays it in the Goodnight Bookstore after the flea market.

    “String Quartet No. 62 in C major, Op. 76, No. 3, Hob.III:77, ‘Emperor’: II. Poco adagio, cantabile” by Joseph Haydn. Also known as “Kaiserhymne” (“Emperor’s Hymn”) and “Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser” (“God Save Emperor Francis”). Inspired by England’s “God Save the King,” Haydn composed it for Kaiser Franz II of the Holy Roman Empire in 1797. The melody was later used for the German national anthem, “Deutschlandlied.”

    The music in the noraebang scene. The title should actually be “Aroha” — the Maori cognate of Hawaiian “Aloha,” as the piece uses the melody of a WWI-era Maori love song that was introduced by New Zealand troops during the Korean War.

    See separate posts for the original version by Cool, lyrics, and a versions that appeared in two other Kdramas.

    The best part of the search was discovering a couple of other pieces in the Maori language. Read on… 😉

      Never mind you already know about the link between Hawaiian and Maori, and also how the song got to Korea. I remember this now actually. I did look it up back when I first heard it on a kdrama, it being you know, a song from my childhood and all.
