El Condor Pasa

Music by Paul Simon, Lyrics by Daniel Alomía Robles

Originally Performed by Simon & Garfunkel

El Cóndor Pasa, (Spanish for "The Condor Passes") is an orchestral musical piece from the zarzuela El Cóndor Pasa by the Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles, written in 1913 and based on traditional Andean music, specifically folk music from Peru. Since then, it has been estimated that around the world, more than 4000 versions of the melody have been produced, along with 300 sets of lyrics. In 2004, Peru declared this song as part of the national cultural heritage. This song is now considered the second national anthem of Peru. It is the best-known Peruvian song in the English-speaking world due to a 1970 cover by Simon & Garfunkel on their Bridge over Troubled Water album. Their version is called "El Cóndor Pasa (If I Could)".

Since 1948, the Phoenix Boys Choir has provided a top-quality music education for boys 7-14 and spirited entertainment for audiences around the world. Concert tours throughout the US, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and the Orient have won the group a reputation as one of the world's outstanding boy choirs. In 2001 the Choir won a Grammy for Best Choral Performance for its recording of Penderecki's Credo with the Oregon Bach Festival Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Helmuth Rilling. "Miso" features the powerful "Misa Criolla" and 10 more inspired, sacred and traditional songs from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Peru. Some favorites (some accompanied by the band Khenany from Sonora) are the familiar tunes "El Condor Pasa," "Escondido," "Cielito Linda," "Eu e voce" from Brazil, the five parts of the title tune," the a cappella sacred songs "Hosanna, Filii David," "Una Hora," "Judas Mercator" and "Laudi Alla Vergine Maria." "Misa" is a joy, the bright sounds of the boys' voices working equally well with Khenany's salsa-flavored folk tunes as with the soaring sacred music!
