By Gene Milford

Duration: 7:18
Score and Parts

The quintet is a rhapsodic setting of five melodies collected by John Donald Robb (1812-1989) from the Hispanic communities of New Mexico.  The opening measures (m. 1-18) introduce the melody Leupta, beginning a series of melodies in a light, compound meter including Al Pie de la Ladera (m. 19-60) and Mi Unico Bein (m. 62-84).  The beautiful, plaintive cancion, Palomita Que Vienes Herida (m. 94-136), provides a striking contrast.  Guanajuato is introduced at measure 141 and followerd by six variations (m. 153-252).   The work concludes with a reprise of the opening two melodies.
