This is a great book for the dedicated guitarist. You must have a background in either classical or fingerstyle guitar. One person found this helpful. La Catedral is surely one of Agustin Barrios’ finest and most beautifully moving works.

Consisting of three movements Preludio Saudade, Andante Religioso, Allegro Solemne – with the Preludio being composed 19 years after the second and third movements – La Catedral seems to represent a certain progression in Barrios’ religious expression. Indeed, La Catedral is undoubtedly a work of religious inspiration misguided as it is.


As the story goes, Andante Religioso the second movement was born out of the impression Barrios had upon entering the Cathedral of San Jose in Montevideo. In the calm of the Cathedral, Barrios was moved by the music of an organist, who was playing the broad, horizontal chording of J. The Andante Religioso of Barrios is an obvious impression of Bach, and emotionally, it seems to be representative of the ordered calm of the Cathedral – a detachment from the chaos and noisy confusion of the outside world.

Although the Preludio Saudade the first agusyin was composed 19 years after the other two movements, one can only guess that its emotional meaning is tied to that of the second movement. It is, perhaps, Barrios’ retrospective first impression of calm in the Cathedral, or possibly his attitude of contemplation which drove him to that place.

The Preludio lends itself to that of a mystery; indeed, it is almost mystical in nature – its structure has a soft, ethereal quality. His adherence to Austin – a sort of semi-Gnostic, transcendalistic pantheism – demands that knowledge be gained through mysticism.

Could the Preludio be an incarnation of Barrios’ philosophy? One can only speculate, but it does seem probable.

“La Catedral” – Agustin Barrios Mangoré

Through mysticism the Preludio comes structure the Andante. Through structure which was achieved through his impression of Bachcame peace and calm. Finally, leaving the Preludio and the Andante, the piece moves augstin its third movement – the Allegro Solemne. This movement is representative of Barrios’ departure from the Cathedral.

Having experienced intense contemplation in the peaceful tranquility of the Cathedral, the Allegro Solemne, in stark contrast, portrays a return to the chaos of the streets; it is the loss of peace that once came through mystical contemplation. We see this in Barrios’ use of unrelenting 16th note arpeggio figures. All in all, it is a fascinating piece. Beginning with whispers of delicate genius, it progresses magnificently yet subtly to a climactic conclusion.


It is a brilliant display of the tugs and pulls in the emotions of Barrios. One can almost feel, through the ebb and flow of the mangkre, the tension, resolution, and dissolution of his experience and contemplation.
