A poetic-musical and psychoeducational study, the doctoral thesis written by Mª Dolores Moreno Guil, was recently awarded the highest grade 'Sobresaliente cum laude' by the University of Córdoba. The 459-page thesis studies the art of the concert song in Spain, situates the composer in his historic, aesthetic and psychological setting, and analizes each of the songs with a poetic-musical guide.
