Anthony AntoliniParticipantDown East Singers (Rockport, Maine) is planning a Latin-American themed Christmas concert featuring Navidad Nuestra and Misa Criolla of Argentine composer Ariel Ramîrez and Colombian arranger Antonio Rincón’s Yambambó. We’d be interested in suggestions for shorter works to add to the concert in Spanish or Portuguese. (No English.)Thanks!Anthony AntoliniMay 29, 2014 at 12:14 am #443516
Michael A. GrayParticipantAdmittedly, several of these pieces are in Latin but most would be a good fit to your already wonderful program:Aguiar, Ernani: Salmo 150Campos-Parsi, Héctor: Ave MariaEscobar, Aylton: Missa Breve on Brazilian Folk RhythmsLuna, Margarita: AlleluyaMoreno, Segundo: Ave MariaNoble, Ramón: La Misa en MéxicoVargas, Téofilo: El Niño Dios MisaVilla-Lobos, Heitor: Misa St. SebastionHope that helps.Michael A.

Jake RunestadParticipantAnthony,I’d love to recommend my “Nada Te Turbe” for your upcoming concert. The text is by Santa Teresa de Ávila (Spain), yet there are strong ties to this poem in many Latin American and South American countries. It is a prayer of comfort and perfect for a holiday program.Listen here:Score are available through JR Music.All best,Jake Runestad, composerMay 31, 2014 at 11:32 am #443654
Jeff DeMarcoParticipantConvidando esta la noche by Zespedes is always fun.Jeff DeMarcoJune 10, 2014 at 1:39 pm #444322
Anthony AntoliniParticipantHi Jake~Thanks so much for sending me this lovely piece. We will seriously consider it for our Latin-American Christmas concerts.Gratefully,Tony AntoliniJune 10, 2014 at 6:14 pm #444335
Have you considered anything by Buenos Aires composer Marcelo Valva? He has an extensive catalog of both secular and sacred works, for instance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifv9MC_Zra0
There are many more clips on YouTube. If something grabs you, please feel free to PM me for his email address.
