Adoro esta canção tradicional e a interpretação que nos é dada através desta bagpipe escocesa ou gaita-de-fole (Rieu assim-assim...).

Desculpa a demora na resposta ao Jordi savall, mas aqui vai:


1. D. Quixote : Some 400 years since the publication of Don Quixote, Jordi Savall presents this fascinating collection featuring all the airs, songs and ballads written or quoted by Cervantes, as well as those to which the author alludes throughout the novel. Savall's musically colorful program is punctuated by Spanish actor Manuel Forcano reading some of the finest passages from the book.

2. Christophorus Columbus - Lost Paradises; Savall and Hesperion XXI present a sound portrait of the polyglot richness of Spanish culture in the 15th century, before Columbus's voyage to the New World. The culture of what Savall calls Ancient Hesperia was one in which Moorish, Sephardic and Christian societies coexisted until in 1492, during the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella, Granada was taken from the Moors, unconverted Jews were expelled from the country and Spain became a zealously Christian land. It was the same ethos that fuelled the Spanish colonisation of the Americas and which Savall chronicles through the major events of Columbus's life, starting with the foretelling of the discovery of the New World in Seneca's Medea, which Columbus himself quotes in his Book of Prophecy, and ending with the explorer's last will and testament in 1506. The music is a typical Hesperion mixture, scrupulously researched, in which pieces and instruments from Sufi, Sephardic and Amerindian traditions are juxtaposed with folk songs from Andalucia and sacred pieces from a wide range of manuscript collections. It's wonderfully discursive, and presented with enormous flair by Savall and his group, though what it really reveals about that world half a millennium away is harder to pin down.
