Composed at various times between 1951 and 1954, Lirica Catalana op. 14 [Catalan Lyric] is an anthology of Catalan texts from various authors and reviews of popular songs. This is the same process Comellas followed in Lírica Castellana and Lírica Inglesa. The songs of these groups do not have a musical connection, but more a linguistic connection. The melodic flow in the different groups, shows how the text and the language used, produced a concrete response Comellas’ harmonic vocabulary.

The highlight of this group is the Cant de la Sibil·la [Song of the Sybil·la], a liturgical drama and Gregorian chant, whose lyrics recounts a prophecy of the Apocalypse and was originally interpreted in Latin. From the thirteenth century there are versions in Catalan. These earlier versions Judici Signum weren’t direct translations from Latin, but came from previous adaptations Old Provencal and Old Catalan, which gives us the idea of the enormous popularity of this song must have had in the past. The text by Comellas used is one of the most popular in Catalonia.

The famous Catalan poet Josep Carner, Joan Maria Guasch and Josep Maria de Segarra wrote the lyrics of five songs that are the First quadern or first book of Catalan songs. These poets had a profound impact on many twentieth-century Catalan composer and many of its texts are works of Mompou, Toldrà, Montsalvatge and others.
