First published in 1954 when Robb was Dean of the College of Fine
Arts at the University of New Mexico, "Hispanic Folk Songs of New
Mexico" has been revised to feature arrangements for voice and
piano with the addition of chord symbols for guitar. Contributors
to the revision are James Bratcher, Marilyn Fletcher, UNM Professor
Emeritus, Tomas Ruiz-Fabrega, Ph.D., and Robert Tillotson, Ph.D.
Robb's discussion falls into three major divisions: a general
examination of the Hispanic folk song in New Mexico (types,
origins, and literary and musical characteristics), of specific
folk songs, and, finally, the songs presented in both Spanish and
Aimed at general folk music enthusiasts and educators for use in
the classroom, yet avoiding being overly technical, Robb conveys
basic principles and imparts his contagious enthusiasm for the
flavor of New Mexico's folk songs.
