"Here's a medieval Catalan song with a chilling twist. Of medieval origin, this is the sad and chilling tale of a queen who, jealous of her beautiful daughter, poisons her, literally knotting her heart in her chest. The story may be related to another song titled 'Delgadina'. The melody is one of the most beautiful in Catalan culture.

I've inserted the character names so the narrative makes sense." -Nancy
