Programme Note:
This piece consists of 15 folk melodies from Spain. They include worksongs, lullabies, entertainment songs and religious songs. They come from a variety of regions and most of them are probably fairly old. The melodies are presented as such, of at most repeated, without formal developments of modulations. My purpose has been to emphsize the melodic character of this material. There is a systematic use of ornamentation and heterophony which nearly gives the impression of real polyphony, but with no counterpoint of chords. This piece was commissioned by the CMC (Winnipeg).
