SSSAAA a cappella. A subtle, sweet-toned miniature in which a teacher asks a child “What maiden will marry the wind?”. The responses are cryptic and classic Lorca. We enjoyed trying to differentiate between the adult and childlike voices. I highly recommend the whole suite (under “Historietas” on this site).
This lists any discs, concerts or collections where this piece is included.
Poem by Federico Garcia Lorca
(sung in Spanish)
What maiden will marry the wind?
The maiden of all our desires.
What does the wind give the maiden?
Whirlwinds of gold. A pileup of maps.
And she gives him what in return?
Her heart laid bare.
Tell me her name.
Her name is a secret.
