El Rossinyol is a lovely old Catalan folk-song in which a bride laments her marriage to a shepherd and asks the Nightingale to send her love to her mother but not her father who married her off. It’s sung below by the boys of the always superb Escolania de Montserrat. The soloist was Eduard Boadas and the concert was given at Strathmore Music Centre (Maryland – USA) on March 16th 2014 as part of the Escolania’s 2014 USA tour. This video has very kindly been made available by Montserrat Gorina-Ysern. Enjoy :-).
