About this product
- DescriptionFirst published in 1954 when Robb was Dean of the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico, Hispanic Folk Songs of New Mexico has been revised to feature arrangements for voice and pia with the addition of chord symbols for guitar. Contributors to the revision are James Bratcher, Marilyn Fletcher, UNM Professor Emeritus, Tomas Ruiz-Fabrega, Ph.D., and Robert Tillotson, Ph.D.Robb's discussion falls into three major divisions: a general examination of the Hispanic folk song in New Mexico; types, origins, and literary and musical characteristics of specific folk songs; and, finally, the songs presented in both Spanish and English.Aimed at general folk music enthusiasts and educators for use in the classroom, yet avoiding being overly technical, Robb conveys basic principles and imparts his contagious enthusiasm for the flavor of New Mexico's folk songs.
