Tune of the Day: En noche callada
from “Los diamantes de la corona”, transcribed for solo flute
This balada is sung by Catalina during Act I of the 1854 zarzuela Los diamantes de la corona by Spanish composer Francisco Asenjo Barbieri.
In silent night the moon poured its white radiance,
And its ray illuminates the dark fortune of a sad lover.
