for unison voices and piano or flute, clarinet, and strings
This energetic setting of the popular Spanish Christmas carol is a delight to sing. The spicy Spanish rhythms make for a refreshing and yet approachable melody, perfect for any choir in search of a novel and worldly title for the Christmas season. The original Spanish text is presented with an English singing translation, and an optional accompaniment for strings, flute, and clarinet is available on hire.
There is also an SATB version.
