Who is Justino Romea?
« on: September 07, 2009, 07:46:17 PM »
Justino ‘Tining’ R. Romea was a Filipino composer, writer, director, musical arranger, poet and journalist. He composed the Awit sa Bohol or Bohol hymn and many school anthems

Born in Napo, Loon, Bohol who later settled in Maribojoc with his wife Susana Miranda (also from Napo) and family because they were able to acquire a property there.

Romea taught at the Bohol School of Arts and Trades (BSAT) now CVSCAFT.

Romea was commissioned to pen the Bohol Provincial Hymn. It was first sung publicly by a female choir of the College of Holy Spirit of Tagbilaran City on March 1, 1970 in time for the unfurling of the Bohol Flag during the opening ceremonies of the 1970 East Visayan Athletic Association held in Tagbilaran City.

On September 24, 1970, the Provincial Board passed Resolution No. 215 adopting it as the official song of the province of Bohol.

As the hymn's original version was in English, the Provincial Board, a few years after, endeavored to have it translated into the vernacular. A competition was launched and the entry of Maxelende Ganade emerged as the best and was adjudged the winner. The Boholano version was adopted by the Provincial Board in Resolution No. 151 dated September 13, 1974.

Romea also composed many school anthems like University of Bohol or UB Hymn, BSAT Hymn, Saint Joseph Institute of Technology in Butuan City, and he is best remembered for the love song "Ako Kang Paabuton," the folk song "Sa Daplin sa Baybayon" as well as most of the songs featured in the annual ‘drama’ presentations in his native Napo for which he served as writer, director and musical arranger.
Nong Tining was also a revered columnist of Bohol Chronicle. In fact, his column was in the frontpage of the Bohol Chronicle defying editing rules.

Romea's father Bernardo "Leon" Vidal Romea was a rondalla trainer, scriptwriter, director and musical Arranger for the "Drama" in Napo, Loon, Bohol.

Bernardo or "Pantaleon" or "Leon", as he was more popularly known, was born on March 12, 1895 in Barangay Napo to spouses Marcelo (Oyong Eloy) and Maria (Oyang Iyay) Vidal, a second wife. His grandparents were Domingo Romea and Cecilia Ordubanes of Barangay Taytay.

After completing his elementary education and first year of high school, the latter at Bohol High School, he qualified for a teaching post, a feat in those days. On June 16, 1910, at age 15, he was appointed temporary teacher in Loon. A few years later, he passed the teachers' examinations and went on to become principal for 19 years.

Romea's command of the English language was grammatically flawless. He bought American books and subscribed to local English magazines (e.g. Free Press, Graphics, etc.) hoping that his children would love or develop the habit of reading. They indeed became bookworms and their communication skills improved. His passion for music was such that he composed songs, organized rondallas wherever he was assigned in his teaching career, and promoted and participated in competitions. This went on even through his retirement years. He could skillfully play any of the string instruments in the rondalla but was at his best with the banduria.

Romea was keen in distinguishing the slightest discord that at times during rondalla rehearsals, he would suddenly wave a hand for a pause just to tune up a dissonant instrument. Romea was also called a "dramaturgo" for he wrote and directed stage plays or "drama" which always served as the culminating feature of the barrio fiesta celebration in Napo. In fact, he is acknowledged as the original playwright, director and composer–musical arranger of Napo’s stage plays that are now mounted on May 25 of each year without fail. It is believed that Napo holds the record of staging the longest running series of annual plays in Bohol, if not the whole country.

Thanks, Brownman, for featuring my article here again. Justino or "Nong Tining" has joined his Creator many years ago. His wife, Manang Susa, still lives in Maribojoc.

I know personally MR. Justino Romea. He was the supply officer of BSAT in the 1960's. He was the composer of the BSAT Song. He was teaching also in Rafael Palma College in Music during that time. We were classmate of his son Jr.

His original composition entitled "Ako Kang Paabuton" has been recorded as "Buhi sa Kanunay" without giving credit the composer.

Balilihan Hymn

Balilihan sa Kahangturan

Kabalilhan diha sa imong ngalan,
Duyog ang kusog sa yanong buhilaman,
Kapatagan, kabukiran nga malunhaw,
Panalangin ni Bathala wa n’ya ihikaw;

Dinagayday sa imong kasugiran,
Diwa ni Dagohoy hunis kaliwatan,
Ngalan mo nakulit na sa mga bungtod,
Diha sa sabakan mo garbo ug bantayog;

Balilihan, Balilihan
Among lungsod, among yutawhan,
Gabayan ka sa mga tinguha,
Ikaw maoy mutya, among himaya,

Balilihan, Balilihan
Among lungsod, among yutawhan,
Gugma’g kadasig ikaw halaran,
Balilihan sa kahangturan

Balilihan, Balilihan
Among lungsod, among yutawhan,
Gabayan ka sa mga tinguha,
Ikaw maoy mutya, among himaya,

Balilihan, Balilihan
Among lungsod, among yutawhan,
Gugma’g kadasig ikaw halaran,
Balilihan sa kahangturan.

Music and Lyrics: Arturo Lomantas
Arranged by: Evelyn Lomantas

Sir Koddi, mao  ba ning kantaha?

           
            BUHI SA KANUNAY

Buhi sa kanunay
Ug dili hikalimtan
Ang gugmang gibati ko
Nga ani-a ning dughan
Bisan giyam-iran
Bisan ug gitamay
Molambo ug molipang kay....
Ang gugmang matoud
Di mamatay

Tuho-i intawon ako
Salig sa gisa-ad ko
Gugma kining way pagkalaya
Bisan ibanlas sa luha
Kon ang kasing-kasing ko
Sa palad sakiton
Didto sa kalangitan
Ko ikaw paabuton.


This is one of the best Visayan classic.  I love this song!

Ang mga Kanta nga sinulat ni Justino Romea.

Ako Kang Paabuton


Buhi sa kanunay, ug dili hikalimtan
Ang gugmang gibatiko
Gi ampingan ning dughan


Chorus: Tohoi intawn ako,
Salig sa gi saad ko
Gugma kining way pagkalaya
Bisan isapnay sa luha


Kung ang kasing-kasing ko
Sa palad sakiton
Didto sa kalangitan
Ako kang paabuton



Bohol Hymn (English version)

This is the land I love,
The land God gave to me,
Caressed by the sun,
Bathed by the sea,
And kissed by the cool breeze
Night and day.
Here’s where the early heroes lived,
Here’s where they wrought peace and here they bled,
Here rise the marvelous cone-shaped hills,
Here’s sweet kinampay grows.



Blessed with white sandy beaches,
Rivers that water valleys,
Seas teem with fishes and cows graze
on the plains,
In ev’ry home love reigns,
God keep my homeland always free,
Let her forever be,
I pledge my strength, my heart and soul,
To my dear home, Bohol.



Saint Joseph Institute of Technology (SJIT) Hymn[4]

I ask you to join me sing this song
of prayer for SJIT
Born out of the mist of the beautiful dream,
Nursed by the love of its founder.
Here I set my eyes to find my place
in the sun,
here I lift up to the skies my ambition
to serve God and man.
So, dear Lord, in heaven,
Bless my dear SJIT
May it live forever, let us sing, and let us pray.


BSAT Hymn

Let us sing and let us praise the BSAT
Its the school that trains brind and hand.
Where the clanging of the anvils,
the buzzing of the sew
And the roar of the plainer
are song we love to here.
Where the joys and hopes are waiting.
Blend in song as we turn the mill
We are wood and metal workers
We sew, we cook, we draw and hammer.


All these jobs will make our country
Strong and free ( repeat )
Its the school that trains brind and hand.
Where the clanging of the anvils,
the buzzing of the sew
And the roar of the plainer
are song we love to here.
Where the joys and hopes are waiting.
Blend in song as we turn the mill
We are wood and metal workers
We sew, we cook, we draw and hammer.


All these jobs will make our country
Strong and free ( repeat )

No offense intended but it's also nice to hear it english.

It's always alive
And can't be forgotten
The love that I feel will be taken care by my heart
Even if it's smirked
Even if it's insulted
It will still bloom and grow well because
True love will never die

Please believe me
Trust on my promises
It's a love that never fade
Even if it will be washed away by tears
If my heart will be tormented
I will wait for you in heaven
