Virgencita uses Spanish text in praise of the Virgin of Guadalupe. "With its initially muted dynamic range, a tentative sense of wonder builds cumulatively to a scrunchy, forte climax on Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe" (Meurig Bowen, artistic director of the Cheltenham Music Festival and choral scholar). Premiered by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir in Mexico, 2012, and the premiere recording was by Polyphony (Stephen Layton, cond.) on the Hyperion label.
