Well, regarding Galindo the man and composer, I'm afraid I can't say much since I haven't read much about his life. Regarding this choral piece, I can make some personal insight: it is an interesting piece to approach since we are dealing with a mexican composer who was trying to find a national yet 'modern' identity through music, yet this one may stand out because it's quite short, calm and doesn't really sound like any indigenous or mariachi song.
Also, he attempted to put music to a very well-known and loved poem by a foreign -yet latinamerican- poet, Pablo Neruda. I say attempted because Galindo, to my perspective, created his own poem. Why? Because he didn't compose music for the entire poem. He chose just the beginning verses, so that makes it a new creation when combined with music...I don't know, is there anything like a choral lied? And I use the german word because I do consider this a type of art song, yet 'canción' doesn't seem right enough to use and to my knowledge there is not a type of choral lied is there? haha...hmm, that would be very interesting to do...maybe someday haha.
Another thing is that Galindo didn't make a cycle of songs using the set of poems that Neruda wrote. So it seems more like a personal composition rather than a comission or even a global idea to set music to poems.
Well...I hope what I wrote makes sense.
And what's the story on Galindo?
Wow, this production looks amazing. Yes, it is taken from 'King Arthur' but I frankly don't know much about it...I'll take a closer look.
Thanks for the links! The aria sounds very challenging for the ...bass? Baritone? hahaha, the line is quite repetitive in what seems to be staccato, so for a singer to make it interesting all the way through, wow!
That first piece is from King Arthur, right? I did that work a few years back. Love it to death. I gotta find a good recording. Let me know if you have recommendations. Check out these cool productions:
