Dormi, Dormi, O Bel Bambin

As with many folk songs, there are about a thousand videos of this on Youtube by many different arrangers. If you’re looking for more videos, be sure you get the DeCormier version. I tried to find one from an Italian choir for authentic pronunciation but found nothing of sufficient quality.

This recording (no video) leaves out the repeats on the 3/8 sections but is otherwise the same version we’re singing. Their Italian is very good and precise so a good thing to listen to for pronunciation. They particularly do the mushed together words properly with both words enunciated even though they’re sung on the same note.

Here is one from some high schoolers, mostly because I was impressed with their soloist but also because the guys do a good job with their rhythm parts.
