La rosa enflorece

Arrangement: Jule Bauer

La rosa enflorece is a Sephardic romance. These romances traditionally were sung by women. In Spain as early as the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance the romance or ballad was a very popular song-form. It originally survived as a folk song handed down in verbal form and was introduced to the Spanish court only towards the end of the 15th century. This song is one of the most famous Sephardic romances, it is handed down in Turkey, Bulgaria, Greece, Libya, Jerusalem. It is an excellent example for the tonal modal system, it is written in the mode “hijaz”. In this version it is an example how a nyckelharpa ensemble accompanied the solo voice of Jule Bauer in an improvised way.
