Description :

Sentimental and romantic music is generally used to convey moods or feelings of tranquility, repose, calmness or sensuality. This type of music makes great use of dynamic levels (dynamics are the loudness or softness of a composition). The soft range of dynamics are mainly used in love songs, lullabies, wistful and melancholy songs and and louder dynamics used in marches and fanfares.

This song is from a musical titled The Brigands of Barcelona
