"In 1890 [Pedrell] began work on his monumental Els Pirineus (Los Pirineos), an operatic trilogy with prologue, which blended the quotation of medieval and Renaissance music with modern harmony and Wagnerian leitmotif. In conjunction with its completion a year later he published the book Por nuestra música, in which he set forth his views regarding Spanish national opera." Walter Aaron Clark in Grove Music Online.
