Mareta Mareta, Release and Release Again

I discovered this wonderful piece of music when I was taught a beautiful dance ‘Release and Release Again’ which a friend from Holland had choreographed. I have since arranged it for voice and classical guitar (using capo at fret 3 altering the timbre of the guitar in just the right way, I feel) and it has become one of my very favourite pieces to play. The song is ‘Mareta Mareta’, an anonymous Catalan lullaby, sung here by Montserrat Figueras and her daughter Arianna Savall, accompanied by Hesperion XXI.
