In this attractive arrangement, Ruth Elaine Schram gives a lovely but lesser-known Mexican lullaby a tender treatment for treble voices. Delightfully simple to sing and featuring delicate dynamic changes, this carol that is appropriate for both school and church settings includes performance options for the original Spanish text, Ruthie's English translation, or a combination of the two. A pronunciation guide for the Spanish lyrics is included.
