canario timbrado

greatness of the canary of Spanish song

Miguel Martmn Angel Sword
Judge C.N.J./F.O.C.D.E. of Song T. Espa6nol

Judging by everything what he has said himself and written fifty years in the last about the canary of Spanish or Timbrado Song he is difficult to think that there are so many ready fans to raise a so inclined race to all type of controversies: the majority equiparables to which the first doctors of the Church maintained in the Bizantino Empire about the sex of the angels But, yet, they are the objective data there. The " Bulletin of Information " of the C.N.J./F.O.C.D.E. of 1998 it contains a " Comparative Panel of the Judged Ornithological Varieties in Exercises 1995/96, 1996/97 and 1997/98 " of which we can extract the following data:

1:) Our race occupies the second place in the list of judged varieties; 23,237 units in season 95/96 27,910 in 96/97 and 26,904 in the 97/98 So single the varieties of Color surpass to us. This data is no unnoticed past for the C.N.J./F.O.C.D.E. as his president demonstrates to the reference that, Fernando Ferrer Higsn does on the matter in his Memory of exercise 97/98.

2:) Is, also and with great difference, the first race of canaries of bred song in our country; second it is the Malinois with 4,745 units judged in 97/98 season and last the Roller with a dissapointing number of 1,713 units judged in same season 97/98.

To this we must unite other data as the progressive increase of the number of members of the Technical Commission of song T. Espa6nol of the C.N.J./F.O.C.D.E. and the numerous constitution every year of new associations whose components, as they denote the social denominations, are dedicated, mainly, to the young and selection of the Timbrado one being a phenomenon specially well-known in Andalusia and Valencia We do not forget either the height that, seems to be, is having our singer in the American continent according to the news that of arrive there.

Also it has increased the presence of the canary of Spanish Song in the ornithological magazines although it is necessary to be sorry that most of the writings that are published they extremely have a poor content from the technical and practical points of view; confusing more than teaching or clarifying doubts to or of by himself disoriented fans and romping more than solving the problems that in many consider or denounce. Sometimes prime a trasnochado and irrational dogmatismo, of cuasipoliticos dyes with which it is tried to aleccionar to reader and to gain it for does not know itself what crossed In summary, amount but nonquality; personally, I think that they would have to be selected better, on the part of the magazines, the articles published on our canary, whenever with it the balance inclined of the side of the quality and it was contributed to an effective formation of the liking.

As we see, we are speaking of a race in the heat of expansion process and whose ceiling, if we acted all the interested ones of moderately intelligent form, is still very far from being reached (more difficult thing of which it seems, seeing the reaction of some pseudodefenders of the purity of the race who see be in danger their obsolete one, monolithic, iron and excluding form to understand the song of the Timbrado one on a par that the commerce and sale of its units, coverall beyond the seas .

The explanation of the success of our small great tenor resides, without the smaller sort of doubts, in a characteristic of its song that constitutes its true greatness: the great wealth and variety of its repertoire This requires a standard the sufficiently ample thing that he is able to lodge and to set the standards of valuation of a song in whose composition they can take part almost infinite series of turns or variations, which represents a difficulty added for the judges of the specialty; since they must be always in a process of continuous formation and prepared to identify and to value new turns, or that had never listened, of cold and objective form, without letting itself take by the surprise of the new development (in opposite case one tends to value of incorrect form the turns, acting under the influence of positive or negative printings that they benefit or they harm, unjustly, the final total qualification of the unit).

If we observed both standard that it has Timbrado Spanish reflected in individual lists of judgment, we will see that they are based clearly on differentiated principles, when not opposed:

A profane one in the matter, at first, would believe to be in the presence of lists corresponding to two different races. There am one of the absurd ones to that the lack has arrived from existing understanding between our federations, although is necessary there to break a lance in favor of F.o.c.d.e. since its list, our list, allows to judge with justice to all the units pertaining to the race, whereas with list F.o.e. one marginalizes to a great number of canaries, that only can receive scores irrisorias; when not corresponding the structural bases of its repertoire canoro with the close parameters of selection that take shelter in standard F.o.e. (the same problem which they raised the primitive codes of song, sources of so many controversies and the existing division in the liking from the Fifties, specially between the Madrilenian and Asturian canaricultores . F.o.c.d.e. it tried to unify positions with F.o.e. facing the last reform that was carried out of the effective list in C.o.m. mentioning its representatives to hold a bilateral meeting, without receiving answer some to its supply of dialogue. Everyone is responsible for its acts and it is not the this suitable place to treat a so serious and delicate problem, but, by very great that is the distance that separates the positions of both federations, I am sure that sooner or later one will be the form to combine efforts and to resolve the existing differences so that, between all, we pruned to contribute one more a more solid laying of foundations to our national race of song, cradle in the force of the reason and the mutual respect and understanding.

Retaking the main subject of these lines, the greatness of our race, I return to repeat, resides in the variety of turns that can take part in their song. The freedom margin that has a criador of canaries of Spanish Song at the time of shaping their particular tastes in the song of their units, are, at least in F.o.c.d.e. amplest. It does not happen the same in F.o.e. whose standard is designed so that the canaries complete whatever more squares of the best list and, since most of his turns they are of limited phonetic text, a greater concretion of the canoras possibilities exists of unit; to observe, also, that when having to base its song on turns of very different characteristics, in attention to its rate of transmission - playing a preponderant role the rate turns continuous -, to its sonorous characteristics and, as I finish indicating, to prioritize those of phonetic text limited (unique notes in terminology F.o.e. , the phonetic text turns limitless (floreos floreos slow and joint variations as we considered them in F.o.c.d.e. , that is in that it bases the immense variety of the repertoire canoro of the race, those that they equip with own personality and those that confer their special attractiveness to him, are seen extremely limited quantitatively and qualitatively. Of all it is known and it is demonstrable empirically that a clear mutual incompatibility between the turns of continuous rate and the turns of discontinuous rate exists
