Yes, there are other arrangements of this lively Spanish carol, but none so perfectly crafted for 3-part mixed groups. That's what makes a Donnelly/Strid arrangement special: an attention to the strengths and limitations of young singers. The piano part is simple and supportive, and a pronunciation guide is included for the few lines of Spanish text. It's an excellent cross-cultural choice for your December concerts. May be sung a cappella.
