Choral (SSAA)
Transient Glory Series. Transient Glory. Boosey & Hawkes #M051480838. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48021153).

Item Number: HL.48021153

ISBN 1458414183. 6.75x10.5 inches.

The title is inspired by “Tembandumba de la Quimbamba,” the main character of a poem by master Puerto Rican poet, Luis Pales Matos. The music alternates between chanting and singing. The two soloists – soprano and alto – plus a pair of Cuban claves add contrast and color to this lively a cappella work. Duration: ca. 8:00.



Performed by Young People's Chorus of NYC, Francisco Núñez, conductor.
