JohnDonald Robb Edited by James Bratcher Foreword by Frank McCulloch Cancionero Songs of Laughter and Faith in New Mexico Robb C ancionero university of New Mexico press ◇ 800-249-7737 “This long-anticipated compilation of New Mexico folk songs is a multigenre sampler of classic songs from the great archive compiled by John Donald Robb, UNM’s legendary music professor and composer. Designed to encourage performance, the book draws from Robb’s field notes, transcriptions, and analyses, amplified by scholars associated with the Robb Musical Trust.” —Enrique Lamadrid, author of Hermanitos Comanchitos: Indo-Hispano Rituals of Captivity and Redemption “This is a book of scores that marry traditional New Mexican Spanish folk songs with art and mainstream folk techniques. The compilation brings awareness of a mestizo people and history, part of the fundamental fabric of US identity, a people largely invisible until the last half century. These Spanish-language songs, shared here with Western art techniques of a fittingly vintage nature, result in a new listening experience.” —Brenda M.
