BANDERAS GRANDELA, Daniela. Death as a sung phenomenon in traditional Chilean children's songs. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2018, vol.72, n.230, pp.9-28. ISSN 0716-2790.

The systematic presence of the topic of death is confirmed in the traditional Chilean and Hispanic American children's songs, an issue that becomes especially evident in the ancient romances that have survived in this repertoire. The present work deals with the treatment of this subject in the verses of these songs, exploring their archetypal contents, relating strictly musical aspects with those referring to the texts, and investigating the function that these songs play in the psychic maturation of the child. In this way, a segment of the traditional Chilean songs collection is examinated, understanding it as a bearer of meaning in its symbolic dimension and as an important fragment of the collective imaginary and memory.

Palabras clave : Childish song; romance; death; symbolism.
