Play the Spanish Classical Song "Guardame Las Vacas"
“Guardame las Vacas” (“Guard the Cows”) comes from a collection of music titled Los seys libros del Delphin, by Spaniard Luis de Narváez (1500–c.1560). “Guardame las Vacas” is one of the earliest published examples of a variation piece: a composition that uses a central theme or chord progression as its basis and presents that idea in a multitude of ways. The first eight measures of my arrangement are shown below.
