¡Ay, Pena, Penita, Pena! was premiered by Luisa Ortega and her father Manolo Caracol as part of the production "La Copla Nueva" in 1951 at the Calderón Theater in Madrid. The lyrics are by Rafael León and Antonio Quintero, and it was composed by Manuel López-Quiroga Miquel.
However, the song did not become popular until two years later, when Lola Flores sang it in the Mexican/Spanish musical "Oh Pain, Little Pain, Pain."
Sabicas released "Pena Penita" in 1958 as a duo with Mario Escudero on his LP "Gipsy Guitar".
"Süßer die Glocken nie klingen" (Sweeter the bells never sound): German Christmas carol from the 19th century. Arranged for guitar in the flamenco rhythm of the bulerías. In Spain the Christmas songs are the "Villancicos" and the title is in Spanish: Nunca suenan las Campanas con tan dulce claridad.
"Dona Nobis Pacem" - Latin: [ˈdona ˈnobis ˈpatʃem], "Give us peace") is a three-part canon to a short Latin text from the "Agnus Dei". The melody was passed down orally. The canon is found in many hymn and song books. Not only in church, but also in the peace movement "Dona Nobis Pacem" is sung. The canon was also often heard at the Monday demonstrations during the reunification of Germany.
