About the Song: Expressing a couple's promise of a love that will transcend time and death, this song has three parts, with the lovers answering each other in the second part. It is set in the slow duple time of the danza, a style well-known for the harana (serenade). (From the CCP Encyclopedia of Philippine Art, vol. 6, p. 249)
