Moroccan Sephardic Romancero is an anthology of Sephardic Romances in the Moroccan tradition, based on four decades of research. Starting in the 1970s' the author has collected more than two hundred variations on ballads from people living in the different countries of the Moroccan Diaspora. For all of us who work on the traditional Romancero-and for all Hispanists whatever their speciality-we need to thank and congratulate Shoshana Weich...for having created and published a splendid book that is invaluable and full of pleasant surprises for the study of one of the most important branches of Spanish poetry: the traditional Romancero.
