Description

This is a type of 15th-century Iberian stanzaic song called a villancico; the nearest English equivalent would be a madrigal. The language is not quite Spanish, but a kind of Mediterranean Lingua Franca. The title might almost translate as “tweet tweet tweet”, since the song is about a lover going into his garden before dawn to gather flowers, hearing a nightingale sing, and asking the bird to tell his lover that he is already married. A simple and charming song, with alternating triple and duple metres, skillfully arranged and ornamented by Jock McKenzie. Dindirindin was arranged especially for Superbrass and their 2011 debut CD “Under the Spell of Spain”, when the solo piccolo trumpet part was recorded by Brian Thomson.

“Many recordings over the last few decades have demonstrated the superb quality of British brass playing; 'Under the Spell of Spain' will rightfully take its place among them.”

“The arrangements all sound fresh, and the playing is beyond reproach.”

“Another impressive offering then from Superbrass, and a worthy successor to their excellent debut disc”

“All cleverly arranged and beautifully played, with excellent sonics.”

John Sunier
Audiophile Audition

“Exploding onto the brass music scene with their debut album ‘Under the Spell of Spain’, the depth of versatility and virtuosity within the ranks of Superbrass has firmly secured it's place as one of the greatest large brass ensembles of all time”
