Thread: Queen'S Jubilee - Ike Ia Ladana

    Default Queen'S Jubilee - Ike Ia Ladana

    Hi there!
    I heard this song on George Winston's album Plains. I have been unsuccessful in finding sheet music or tabs for it at all. I have searched multiple times in different search engines. How strange! If any one can point me in the right direction to find this lovely song I would appreciate it greatly!
    Thanks!

    I haven't seen any tablature for Queen's Jubilee. The mele was written by Queen Lili`uokalani in honor of Queen Victoria. My preference is to have it sung verses an instrumental piece. Here are the lyrics with English translation followed with a video by Weldon Kekauoha . . .

    Code:
    Queen's Jubilee 
    Queen Lili`uokalani 
    
    Mahalo piha, Mōʻī ʻo ʻEnelani 	All hail to you, Great Queen of England
    Kuʻi kou kaulana nā ʻāina pau 	Fair Queen who rules over land and sea
    Na kai ākau nā one hema 	From northern seas to southern shores
    ʻIkea kou ʻihi mana nui 	Your way is known both far and near
    Eia mākou i kou kapa kai 	We come to your shores, gracious lady
    ʻI kou lā nui Iubilī 	        On this great day of your Jubilee
    I hiʻi mai i kou mākou aloha 	To bring kind greetings from afar
    Maluna ou ka malu o ka Lani 	May heaven bless you, long may you reigntd
      	 
    Hauʻoliʻoli ʻEmepela o ʻInia 	All hail, all hail, Empress of India
    I kēia makahiki Iubili 	        In this your year of Jubilee
    ʻĀkoakoa nā aliʻi ʻaimoku 	Now kings, queens and princes great
    A puni ke ao holoʻokoʻa 	Have all assembled here today
    E hiʻilani e mililani 	        To pay due homage and reverent love
    Ua hui pūʻia me Hawaiʻi 	Hawaii joins with loyal fervor
    E uhi mai ka lani i kona nani 	May Heaven smile on you
    E ola ka mōʻī ke Akua 	        God bless the Queen, long may she live

    Nana ka maka; ho`olohe ka pepeiao;
    pa`a ka waha.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.
    Thus one learns.

    I have often wished there was a uke book devoted to Lili'uokalani's music. (With a CD.) I've found a few pieces here and there but not enough!

    Update on this project... 1 year later.
    Well, it took me quite a while to find the sheet music for this song - I found it in UC berkeley library archives.
    I am attaching the PDFs of the original score below in case anyone is interested. My next task is transcribing it for ukulele... this is a real challenge for me as I only have a rudimentary knowledge of music... but we will see how it goes. If anyone else is so inclined... I'd be happy for any help!

    Thank you soooo much. I have been looking for the sheet music for some time. I am going to attempt to adapt it to a hammered dulcimer.

    Keep us posted on your efforts. I am still working on it... (not that it's hard to to. It's hard for ME to do )
