Program Notes

Granada is a song written in 1932 by Mexican composer Agustín Lara. The song is about the Spanish city of Granada and has become a standard in music repertoire. Because of the flamboyant nature of the tune, and the Spanish lyrics, Granada has been accepted by college music courses as an "art song."

Lara's opening lyrics are:

Granada tierra soñada por mí.
Mi cantar se vuelve gitano cuando es para ti.

Dorothy Dodd's version begins thus:

Granada, I'm falling under your spell,
And if you could speak, what a fascinating tale you would tell.
