The Neapolitan Song Five Great Singers

The Neapolitan Song Song 3 - Marechiare


Marechiare is an excellent example of the powerful moods and emotions in Neapolitan songs. This song projects alternating images of love, the sea, joy and sadness. The emotion in the singer's voice is as important to the song as the lyrics and melody.
