Three Songs Without Words for Carlos Andrés

Written in 1970 to honour the birth of Segovia's youngest son, in May 1970. The music celebrates the newborn child and quotes part of the fifth of Duarte's Five Quiet Songs Op.37, 'When Jesus Christ was four years old'. The third movement is an arrangement of the Roundelay from Three Simple Songs Without Words Op.41 for recorder and guitar.


I - Song of Greeting; II - Sleep Song; III - Roundelay.
