~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Being that all web listings of Rodrigo's works are in alphabetical order, I have sorted these major vocal works chronologically in an attempt to discover a trend or pattern of development in Rodrigo's songs. No distinct pattern, however, is to be found--we encounter fairly evenly throughout Rodrigo's life is predilection for 16th-century poetry and simple, thinly textured, chordal accompaniments. It is interesting to note, however, that Rodrigo turned to songs as one of his main forms of composition in 1934- the year following his marriage to Victoria Kamhi. Undoubtedly, the influence of her piano skills and her gift of poetry, along with the fervent love the two shared, seemed to inspire Rodrigo in his composition of song.
