From the SAVAE (San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble) recording El Milagro de Guadalupe we offer this intriguing Christmas piece from the Renaissance period, arranged and edited by the group's musical director, Christopher Moroney. This setting attempts to simulate how a musical performance may have sounded during the colonial epoch in Mesoamerica during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Extensive historical notes are found in the octavo regarding text, composer, transcription, and instrumentation. The choral parts are not difficult and a phonetic rendering makes the pronunciation quite easy to learn. Instrumental parts are provided for recorders, flutes, and sundry percussion instruments. Listen to this unique track and consider adding a new sound to your Christmas celebrations!
