This arrangement explores the Caribbean sty;e known as “Afro-Cuban”: independent melodic lines with strong rhythmic pulses are superimposed to build up textures that are both rich and translucent. Every section of the choir is spot-lit; every section gets its turn to lead. The piece would especially suit a choir in search of something seasonal but upbeat which is not a “novelty number.” (3:05).
