Choral sheet music with a piano accompaniment featuring Luigi Dallapiccola's music based on the lyrics of the noted Spanish poet, Antonio Machado (1875-1939). Luigi Dallapiccola (1904-1975) was an Italian composer. He graduated from the Florence Conservatory where he later taught as a professor from 1931-1967. Dallapiccola's career was significantly affected by the rise of fascism in Italy and Germany. After his disillusionment with Benito Mussolini and his regime, Dallapiccola was quoted as saying that his style could no longer be light and carefree. Dallapiccola continued to tour as a recitalist during World War II, but due to Nazi occupations across Europe, his travel was limited, and he had to go into hiding at times. Two of his compositions, _Canti di prigionia_ and _Il prigioniero_, are protest works that speak out against totalitarian regimes.
