Abstract

After dedicating several publications to study las relation between plastic art (drawing, painting, and sculpture) and poetry with sport, we wished to write about the affinities of this one with music. There is plenty of popular music destined to sport, a good example of them are the football team anthems of all categories, that in all the world are interpreted in stadiums by massive choirs during the games. Our claim was more ambitious, because we intended to find compositions of cultured music inspired in sport situations.
