Music by Maestro Nicola D'Amico (1894-1968)
Lyrics by Angelo Gloria
The music for this song was composed by my father, Nicola D'Amico.
It is in his native language,
Siciliano, although he was known more for his mastery of pure Italian Toscano. He was a great
opera singer, 9 years as primo baritono for the San Carlo Opera of New York during the 1920's.
"Ucchiuzzi Chiari" was written in the early 1930's, copyrighted and published in 1935. The lyrics,
in Sicilano, were written by Angelo Gloria, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude.
