“La Catedral” – Agustin Barrios Mangoré | Samuel Ortiz

We could mention that half way in the 20 th century it was a common trend in Europe to write music with 3 movements. Generally, this kind of music was highly regarded by listeners, it was considered intellectual music.

It is said, he was sick at the time and he was staying at the hotel which was really close to the Cathedral at Prelduio. Pictures of sheet music retrieved from: To my surprise, the information found on the subject is diverse.

Also, it clearly adds to the marks of religiousness and spirituality portrayed in the suite. The differences found are related to places and motives for catedrql the composition. Bach works and he was one of the first guitarists to have performed a whole Lute Suite No.

It is said that this composition was Barrios tribute to Bach.

I hope that preludip have gained some insights about this incredible composition. For more information on sxudade subject please refer to the following books: Also, there is a discrepancy about this movement in regards to the motives for writing it. There is one belief that it was written because of financial problems and another that Barrios was suffering from a kind of depression that lead him to compose the prelude.


Historical Background on Repertoire. It is by these two movements that he described his experience with the Cathedral.

This is information I retrieved from interviews, written documents and blogs from some of the most dedicated professors, performers and historians on the music of Agustin Barrios. Some argue the motive was a kind of sadness he had experience because of the death of his wife his sentimental partner since we have saydade records of his marriage Cateedral Silva Zevan according to some authors. The contrasting sections are meant to represent the differences in his experience from the inside and outside of the Cathedral.

The real motive for writing this movement is unknown. So I decided to start reading and researching about the song.

On a different note, you may be wondering about the style of the suite. There are some differences in the facts shared by people about this masterpiece. This was catderal birthplace and it is said that after spending some time out of the city he came back to his home town and went to the cathedral.

He was a great admirer of J. Genio de la Guitarra by Candido Morales. The story said that he was able to hear the bells of the church from his hotel room and that was his inspiration for the composition.

Therefore, they argue the name of this cathedral was wrong if this was Barrios catexral of inspiration. One of the main differences that we find in the account is in regards to which cathedral he used as an inspiration for the composition. This movement represents the abandonment of tranquility and the spiritual atmosphere he experienced inside the cathedral.


This could have been one of the motives preluio the elaboration on the prelude and make it a whole suite.

I believe that knowing the circumstances, motives and historical background in which a song was written can and should make a difference in your performance. While still in his sublime experience he walks out of the church and was shocked by all the chaos outside the walls of the church.

Also, as mentioned before, his woman at the time had died and he decided to write the prelude as a grief or mourning song. So what I want to do, is share saudaee information and historical prelufio of this composition.

This concludes my little research of this magnificent composition. Several concert programs from Habana, Cuba and El Salvador witness this fact. Amir April 16, at 8: Many believe that because of these circumstances he decided to write this as a totally separate work. But, we know as a fact that Gloria Zevan was with him at the moment of his death in August, in El Salvador. So far, a pretty straight forward compilation of details; now the saudde, where are the differences in the accounts?
