Khafaja (marcha mora)

Finalist in the ‘IV Concurs de Composició de Música Festera Villa de Calpe 2004’. Dedicated to the Director and friend of the author Rafael Garcia Vidal.


Com tú, ciutat, s´afonen i s´esborren.
Ara, jo hem sent recitant per als savis
Senyors que amb goig i estima et poblaven…
Fugir has vist els teus habitants de colp…

Com tú, ciutat, s´afonen i s´esborren.

Poet Ibn Khafaja
Elegy lamenting the fall of Valencia in the hands of Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, “El Cid”.

The work is based on previous Arab verses translated into Spanish and taking as a point of reference the initial letters of each verse to build the following sound relationship:

C > C
A > A
S > B
F > F
C > C
