A companion set of audio compact discs to the text collecting examples of the musical forms used over the centuries in this often isolated and harsh but beautiful region of the Rio Rande. A blend of religious and secular music from sixteenth-century Spain, Mexican-influenced folk tunes, and melodies indigenous to the life of the region, the music covered here includes romances, trovos, cuandos and decimas, inditas, corridos, canci nes, ceremonial and religious music, and dance music.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Fifteen years in the making, this book was well worth the wait . . . This is a 'must' for any complete southwestern library!"
This survey of Hispanic folk music of the Rio Grande . . . will prove essential to any student of Hispanic music . . .
Fifteen years in the making, this book was well worth the wait . . . This is a must for any complete southwestern library!
"The authors make an important contribution by tracing the history of scholarship of particular songs as well as of Hispano musical culture in general."
"La Msica" is superior . . . it has a real acknowledgment that actually gives credit to and the names of living people. . . . "La Msica" is a good way to sing oneself into the new century.
. . . a wonderful work. Kudos and more kudos to Jack Loeffler for the outstanding labor of love . . . The outstanding photography of Jack Parsons also documents the well-known musicians of New Mexico. . . . What a treat! . . . I highly recommend this book.
