Whence come the lyrics to "La Virgen de Macarena"?

Post by eldin raigmore » Sat 03 Dec 2016, 18:42

From whom (if known), from where (as precise as reasonable), and from when (also as precise as reasonable), do the lyrics to the traditional Spanish "bullfighters' song" "La Virgen de la Macarena" come?
Does anyone know?
And does anyone know how to find out, other than just posting the question on this CBBoard?
Thanks!

Various early xx c. music publications from Mexico and elsewhere list this song as a "popular song" of that era and seems to have been quite the pop hit of the time. The classic arrangement of the music looks to have been more or less the brainchild of Bernardino Bautista Monterde and the lyrics by Antonio Ortiz Calero in 1946.
