Notes & Reviews:

Rodrigo's music for voice and orchestra includes settings of texts by his wife based on excerpts of the Dead Sea scrolls and simple Christmas verses. 'Music for a Salamancan Codex' is a 1953 setting of a poem by the Spanish poet and philosopher, Miguel de Unamuno. Quintessentially Spanish in their nature, Rodrigo's choral works combine simple, earthy folk songs with a deep and devout sense of spirituality.

MusicWeb International
There's sweetness and light here for Christmas Day in the settings of Christmas songs in a manner reminiscent of Canteloube's Songs of the Auvergne and tougher material for when the turkey and tinsel are but a distant memory. Utterly different from the Concierto de Aranjuez as this music may be, it's very well worth exploring - perhaps try it from the Naxos Music Library first if you're not sure: the texts are offered there, too.
