El cura y la gallina

by Duran, Natividad

Abstract

San Jose, New Mexico. A woman cook forgets to ask the priest how he wants his chicken prepared and sends a girl to church where the priest is saying mass. She asks him in a Gregorian chant how he wants his chicken prepared. In a responsorial manner (also using Gregorian chant), the priest tells her how the chicken is to be prepared. Music used in story. Quality: Good/Fair

Note

The Rubén Cobos Collection of Spanish New Mexican Folklore is a sound archive containing over 2000 pieces, including ballads, poems, prayers, nursery rhymes, riddles, proverbs, stories, personal narratives, songs, instrumental music, and descriptions of social customs, ritual practices, and children's games. The recordings were made between 1944 and 1974 in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado.

Researchers may find it useful to use the published catalog of the music collection, "Music in the Rubén Cobos Collection of Spanish New Mexican Folklore", edited by Victoria Lindsay Levine and Amanda Chace, available in the Colorado College library and several other U.S. libraries.

In 2005, Colorado College received a grant from the Colorado Digitization Project to digitize the music in the Cobos Collection.
