La Pastoreta

(Catalan Folk Song)

Since Miguel Llobet (1878 - 1938) and Federico Mompou (1893 - 1987) made the Catalan folk song well known by means of their arrangements, you find these songs all around in various settings.

La Pastoreta is the song about the shepherd girl. The arrangement is a bit more traditional concerning the harmonies than the version written by Miguel Llobet. A brisk and joyful tempo is appropriate.

Eythor Thorlaksson made this arrangement for guitar quartet.
