Spanish term or phrase: reducido e adaptado
Context:
(...) un compendio de numerosos temas tradicionales reducidos e adaptados entre sí (...) con introducción, cierre, así como arreglos e interpretación (voces e instrumentos)

I was thinking of using "cut up and rearranged"... the problem is that I will use "arrangements" for "arreglos" in the next line of the sentence...

Thanks is advance for any suggestions.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi, philgoddard and Emma, what do you think about "abridged and joined together as a single track"? (see context in Galician)


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Emma Goldsmith: Yes, abridged is nice, but I don't think you can leave out "entre sí". How about "abridged and adapted in the form of a medley"?

  -> Thanks. It already says "compendio", which is why I suggested leaving it out. A medley is a compendium.
