Even though La Catedral is one of Barrios’s early works written init didn’t assume a final form until the last years of Barrios’s life, when the Costa Rica and El Salvador manuscripts were written.

Throughout his career, Barrios evolved how he played La Catedraladding and removing parts, changing fingerings, and renotating entire movements. As a result, you will find that nobody plays it exactly the garrios way, depending on which transcription they are working from and how their preferences shape the bits they incorporate or omit to create their own unique renditions.


Part of the joy of listening to or performing La Catedral is the variety of arrangements and interpretations it makes possible, providing something new to discover each time it is played.

Barrios wrote the original two movements, Andante Religioso and Allegro Solemnein Uruguay in Preludio Saudade was added as the first movement inafter having been written in Havana, Cuba in Although some people reject the first solemnf as being part of La Catedralit fits perfectly with the rest of the work and is a great work in its own right. Preludio Saudade was written originally in two voices Costa Rica manuscriptbut later renotated in three voices El Salvador manuscript.


My original transcription combined the two because I thought the three-voice notation could be ls challenging to read and the two-voice notation was inaccurate, rendering some quarter notes as sixteenth notes.

Combining the two provided what I thought was the ease of reading of the two-voice notation along with the accuracy of the three-voice notation. Since then, I have changed my mind.

La Catedral by Agustín Barrios –

My most recent transcription notates three voices without the clutter of an overlayed two-voice rendition. I’ve omitted most dynamics not that Barrios notated many dynamicsleaving it up to the performer to decide how to interpret the piece. Some fingerings may pose too much of a stretch for your left hand, requiring you to develop alternate fingerings e.

In some cases I stay true to the Barrios recording of La Catedral e. The campana section measures 31—45 repeats as Barrios played it and its fingering matches his original fingering which changed in the later manuscripts.

Finally, the metronome mark for the third movement is probably too fast. Changed fingering of second D”’ in measure 74 of third movement to use second finger on second string.

Corrected beat unit for third movement tempo. It should have been a dotted quarter note instead of a quarter note. That’s what happens when you memorize music and rarely go back to read a score, whereupon you notice all the minor errors.


Notated only 3-voice version for clarity. Corrected measure 4 fingering finger 2 should have been 3. Clarified first voice in measures 41 and Removed measure 46 grace note slide. Changed second voice dotted half notes to whole notes in measures 1 and 2. Changed double-dotted notes in measure 5 to use ties. Changed measure 8 to match later manuscripts.

Edited fingerings, note durations, and overall typesetting for greater accuracy and clarity. Fixed formatting issues in “Andante Religioso” in the “-notab” version. Left-hand aghstin collided with the time and key signatures in various measures, causing the fingering to be rendered out of place. Changed right-hand fingering in first measure of “Andante Religioso.
