El tiple

Pastor’s wife has fallen desperately ill, and taken to her bed. He decides to go, in secret, to sell his beloved tiple (a musical instrument) in order to buy medicine for her. Afterwards, he arrives back home, heartbroken, only to find his wife’s condition has improved a little – if only he would come and play her a song on the tiple – she pleads. There’s nothing else for it… he will have to go and try to get it back again!
