A short, very poignant novella in which a priest is getting ready to conduct a requiem mass for Paco, a young peasant who was killed by the Nationalist forces at the outbreak of the Spanish civil war.  

Three narrative threads are interwoven with the priest recalling his relationship with Paco over the years, the altar boy relating Paco's life in song and the whole being framed in Mosén Millán's exhausted present day life.

A very popular choice for A level students, the language and topic matter are very accessible.
