Program notes

 

Dios te salve, Reina y Madre de misericordia,
vida, dulzura y esperanza nuestra:
Dios te salve. A ti llamamos los desterrados hijos de Eva;
a tí suspiramos, gimiendo y llorando en este valle de lágrimas.
Ea, pues, Señora abogada nuestra,
vuelve a nosotros esos tus ojos misericordiosos
y, después de este destierro, muéstranos a Jesús,
fruto bendito de tu vientre.
¡Oh clementísima! ¡oh piadosa! ¡oh dulce Virgen María!
Ruega por nos, santa Madre de Dios,
Para que seamos dignos de alcanzar las promesas
de nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Amén.

 

This religious lied is divided into three sections and developes the old chorale Salve Popular Cartagenera by Jose Sanchez Medina; an unisonal hymn usually sung during the most important religious events in the city of Cartagena. In this work, the choir is acompanied by a cello and a piano (which can also be replaced by an organ). However, there are several occasions where we can listen to the cello playing as a soloist. On the contrary, the piano is mainly used for getting the harmonic background while the choir is singing in a classic-romantic way.
