Bendicho juez de la verdad (2000)7:39
Spanish speakers may notice immediately that despite its familiar sound, the title of the piece is not really Español; it is a Jewish Ladino funeral blessing “Blessed is the Righteous Judge”, a blessing that represents acceptance of God’s word whether good or bad — with joy. The piece comprises three sections, the first and last representing birth and death respectively and being essentially similar although set in opposite directions. Life is represented in the middle section, which is, therefore, more linear, lively, humorous, intellectual, emotional, and capricious. Throughout the piece, the trombone melody is either extracted from, based upon, or in the spirit of the original Sephardic chant melody of this blessing. The electronic part is spiced with vocodered text elements of the chant.
