Arrangements of popular songs for mezzo-soprano and piano (in collaboration with Christine Prost), collected in 1987. Half of it is the recovery of old - or recent parts: IV. "Nana" is the second of Lorca's poems (n°10, 1947); VI. is the Asturian lullaby of the Four Choirs (n°95); VII. is "Tango el Mariquita" (n°11, 1947); VIII. is "Alborada" (n°12, 1947) in memory of "La Argentinita".

 

The new parts are: I. "Como la flor", II. "Las mis penas son de amor", III. "Cuando paso por el puente", V. "Martinete".

 

These eight songs have been adapted for voice and guitar by Alberto Ponce.
