Description:
Eduardo Torres was a Spanish organist and a composer for organ and
harmonium. Torres was a Roman Catholic priest, who was choirmaster at the
Seville Cathedral (the third-largest church in the world).
His most well-known work is his Saetas, a collection of four organ pieces based
on Andalusian folk songs. A Saeta is a traditional Andalusian hymn performed
during Holy Week. Addressed to the Holy Virgin and to the Crucified Christ, the
literal meaning of the word "Saeta" means "arrow". These arrows of sorrow
were sung a capella during the way of the Cross on Holy Week. The Saeta IV is
inspired by this text: “"No hay quien me dé una limosna para ayudar a enterrar
al Hijo de esta Senora,que se quea esampara huerfana viuda y sola!” (“There
is no one to give me alms to help bury the Son of this Lady who is left without
help, orphaned, widowed and alone”.) This piece was also famous for the
interpretation and recording by Fernando Germani in Westminster (1939).
