Rafael Alberti is one of the great Spanish poets of the 20th Century. A few years after publishing the poem, Se equivoco la paloma (The Dove Was Wrong), Alberti was visited by a young Argentine composer who asked for permission to use the poem in a song. Alberti had never thought that his poem would become such a great success as it has. The young composer was indeed Carlos Guastavino. The song is a wonderful blend between the lyrics and the music. Guastavino musically describes the great tenderness of the dove that missed the way, but leaves to your imagination any kind of interpretation that you would like to make of this beautiful poem.

Oscar Escalada : Latin American Choral Series  : SATB : Sheet Music

Oscar Escalada : Latin American Choral Series

A wonderful collection of contemporary Latin American choral music selected by noted Argintian conductor and composer Oscar Escalada. "La Chaparrita " is a brisk Venezuelan folk melody and is fun to sing and includes the vocal imitation of a typical pattern played on a "cuarto". "Candomble", from Uruguay, is written in a rhythm very close to the tango and the habanera. "La Ninez De America" is based on a poem of Argentinian poet Alberto del Carril and is inspired by the Incas. "Cancion Con Todos " is a two-part song based on two different rhythms. The first part is calm and recognizes each area of the Americas with characteristic elements such as copper for Chile, sun for Peru etc. The second part is rhythmic and exultant with the hope of bringing all the peoples of Latin America to sing together!

Songlist: Cancion Con Todos, Se Equivoco La Paloma (The Dove Was Wrong), La Ninez De America, La Chaparrita , Candomble
