More Biagi with Duval (check out the previous tandas)! This time from DJ Thomas Hildebrandt from Bamberg, Germany. Thank you Thomas! Here's what he had to say about the tanda:

"This is an unusual tanda for me, since I'm mostly a fan of the great rhythmical tangos from the 1930s and 40s. But I got caught in Duval's dramatism and the religious severity of the lyrics, accompanied by the late Biagi's haggish piano. I played this tanda recently in our milonga Dos Corazones in Fürth where it was met with spontaneous applause and curious requests; one dancer later remarked the tanda was "so coherent as if it was composed as a suite". Our milonga is set in a charming art atelier located in a former church – quite fitting for this kind of music. Duval's sentimental voice carries us through different forms of non-existent love: desired, missing, impossible, and lost, and combines this with themes of prayer, afterlife, and renunciation, only to climax in a devoted... but listen yourself!"
