Diferencias sobre 'Guárdame las vacas'

Los seys libros del delphín

The two pieces, Canción del Emperador and Diferencias sobre ‘Guárdame las vacas’ come from Narváez’s Los seys libros del delphín, a remarkable collection of polyphonic music transcribed for the vihuela, with elaborate fantasias; the work includes the earliest known sets of variations. His Diferencias (Variations) were based on a popular song of the time, Guárdame las vacas (Watch over my cows).

Die zwei Stücke Canción del Emperador und Diferencias sobre ‘Guárdame las vacas’ stammen aus Los seys libros del delphín von Narváez, einer bemerkenswerten Sammlung polyphoner Musik mit aufwendigen Fantasien transkribiert für die Vihuela; das Werk umfasst die frühesten bekannten Sätze von Variationen. Seine Diferencias (Variationen) sobre ‘Guárdame las vacas’ beruhten auf einem Volkslied jener Zeit, Guárdame las vacas (Wach’ über meine Kühe).
