Children learn this engaging Brazilian folk song quickly in either Spanish or English (text & translations by Gerhard Cartford). The tasteful accompaniment and modulation between the last two verses keep the piece moving forward to the simple, rhythmic coda. This piece has a sacred text suitable for almost any time of the year, and is a good addition to the repertoire of choirs who want to explore the sounds of many parts of the world.
