The work was written at the end of the summer of 1932 in Huerta de San Vicente (San Vicente Farmhouse) (Granada), in just twenty days… In early September, Lorca confesses in Madrid to Santiago Ontañón that he comes with a new work and that he is going to read it at the home of Rafael Martínez Nadal, a reading he repeats on September 17 at the home of his friend Carlos Morla Lynch. His siblings Francisco and Isabel recall in their respective memoires that summer in Granada, in the San Vicente Farmhouse, with the background music of Tomás Pavón and Bach.
