A setting of the text of the same name by Federico García Lorca, Romance Sonambulo explores the relationships of words and ideas within the poet's bleak yet beautiful text. Lorca contrasts the joys of nature to the persecutions of the Gypsies shortly before the Spanish Civil War. For this and other poems seeking social change, Lorca was later assassinated.
