Obituary of the Caramelles del Roser Association on the occasion of the death of our confrare Miquel Carrera Busquets.

( 26-12-1944 / 03-06-2020 ).

In these difficult times that we are living today, another dear confrare, Miquel Carrera i Busquets, has suddenly left us. Miquel, a native of Vilatorta, was a member of the Caramelles del Roser for the last twelve years and until his death. For the last ten years he has been a member of the board and treasurer of the entity. As a child, he accompanied his grandfather, along with his brother Anton, to the caramelles singing every Easter Sunday. Later life took him away from the caramelles world, until that, in 2008, he rejoined the confraria as a tenor.

Miquel was a good confrare, friend and singer who, with his voice, together with his colleagues, gave the characteristic sound of the Caramelles del Roser, a sound that has been left without his participation. As life passes and especially in painful times, we realize the importance of people pushing forward nonprofit collective commitments, with generosity, perseverance, and dedication.

There is nothing better to remember Miquel than to repeat here the poem that, on the occasion of his death and in his homage, was written to him by his brother Anton Carrera:

Words for Miquel
my brother.


In full,
suddenly,
it's time to fold.
Your last walk
has closed the circle
of the beautiful places
that you loved so much:
your places
which are also ours. 

The sun was setting
and your working day was taken away.
We commented on it often
while walking:
it is better for death to be
suddenly,
unpredictable.
That has been yours. 

Anton Carrera Busquets-

Sant Julià de Vilatorta, 4 june 2020.

Miquel, will always remember you. Rest in peace.

Obituary of the Caramelles del Roser Association on the occasion of the death of its President Josep Fiter Vila

 (11-11-1957 / 24-02-2020).

In all that he did, Josep put an extreme, perfectly deliberate, and willful attitude. This has been the main reason for his success as President of the Caramelles del Roser. In addition, his enthusiasm was passed on to all other fellows without exception.

The planning and cataloging work of the caramellaire legacy, which his beloved predecessor, the beloved and longed for Santi Riera, had undertaken, was almost complete.

With Josep, the premises have been arranged that houses the huge volume of a large group, such as those of the Caramelles del Roser: layers, hats, banners, musical instruments, an archive of lyrics and music of songs, banners, pennants , books, diplomas, trophies, reminders, photographs, paintings, press clippings, that is, all those emblematic things that the fellows love so much.

And, beyond all, the voice of Josep, who, with the rest of the voices of his companions, gave the characteristic sound of the Caramelles del Roser, a sound that has remained, for now, without his participation. .

As life goes on and especially in times as painful as it is today, we realize the importance of people, who, with their generosity and perseverance, have pushed forward collective, non-profit and with a total delivery.

We are all part of a millennial culture that strives to continue to exist, fighting the bad faith of those who would want it extinct. Josep was aware of this and made every effort to keep the flame of our continuity as a people on fire. It is about this generosity that I did not tell you recently.

A finite song,

a finite force,

a muted voice,

a stagnant life.

Josep will always remember you. Rest in peace.

The caramelles are an alive festival, rooted and widespread throughout Catalonia and constitute one of the identifying characteristics of Catalan customs.

On Sant Julia de Vilatorta the caramelles originated within the Confraternity of the Roser, founded in 1590 on our people and sealed by the founding bull dated 23 February 1592 which is preserved in the Archives of Vic.

Since then, every year without interruption, has been practicing this tradition and has become one of the main festivals of our calendar.
