A la nanita nana : Unison vocal score
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.

None of this is too taxing technically, but nevertheless gives scope to the sensitive performer to set the scene in matter of moments. The choral parts too are well within the reach of amateurs, including school or youth choirs, and li gratefully in the voice, allowing the development of idiomatically warm Iberian tonal qualities. * The Organ, November 07 *
