Love and its demons
Spanish secular Music from the XVI and XVII centuries

Through secular songs and cantatas (these last ones, obtained from the Mackworth Manuscript) from different Spanish composers, this program makes a journey through the different stages and forms of love. From the hypnotizing chant of sirens, the lovers indecision, and the rancor of indifference and finally the triumph of love; this program shows us the universality and timelessness of the sorrows and pleasures of this feeling.

Por medio de tonos humanos y cantatas profanas (provenientes del Manuscrito Mackworth) de diversos compositores españoles, este programa musical hace un recorrido por las diferentes formas del enamoramiento. Desde el canto hipnotizante de las sirenas, la indecisión del enamorado,  los rencores de la indiferencia  y finalmente el triunfo del amor; este programa nos muestra la universalidad e intemporalidad de los dolores y placeres de este sentimiento.
