The Origins and Character of recitado
Anonymous musical setting of the romance Río de Sevilla, from I-Tn MS R 1-14. fol. 27.
a) Transcription of the romance as presented a 3 in the Turin manuscript
b) The same romance as a series of guitar chords
c) The same romance in an arrangement with the top voice isolated as a vocal melody. (This is a purely hypothetical arrangement. In performance the melody most likely would draw pitches and gestures from both the upper voices, not just the top voice.)
