CHORAL MUSIC OF LATIN AMERICA - SATB Music List - compiled by Suzanne Tiemstra
remarks: this is a list I presented to the midwest 1994 ACDA
in Chicago; I have performed all of these pieces (with orchestra or

instruments scored), and they are winners.

Heitor Villa-Lobos, "Magnificat-Alleluia", Max Eschig, 1957, # ME-8234.
remarks: about 8 minutes; orchestral accompaniment; choral edition
keyboard reduction (organ accomp. sounds better piano); extensive
mezzo-soprano solo consists of verses of the Magnificat, alternating
with choral alleluias (some divisi); in Latin; his last piece,
commissioned by the Vatican; for college & adult choirs; expensive
piano/vocal/choral copies (so try to borrow).
Alberto Ginastera, "Psalm 150," Boosey & Hawkes, 1970, #BH.BK.697.
remarks: about 12 minutes; additional treble choir (middle
not difficult); large orchestra, much perc.; sections of
dissonance and sections of blissful consonance; an early work; for
college & adult choirs; in Latin.
Carlos Chávez, "Corrido de 'El Sol'," Kalmus #A7002.
remarks: a rip-roaring lot of fun; in Spanish; Mexican ballad; large
orchestra; not very effective with piano; all parts rental.
José Angel Lamas, "Popule Meus," (1801) in anthology "Archivo de música
colonial de venezolana", cuad. (vol.) 7
(Montevideo: Instituto Interamericano de
Musicologia, 1942).
remarks: get this on interlibrary loan and add a bass part from the

orchestra; very effective with keyboard or orchestra; sustained
solo and short "shadow" tenor (the tenor can be tall!); European
classical style; mulato native composer from Caracas; very famous piece
sung in many churches in LA every year on Good Fri, because it was
premiered on the day Bolivar started his campaign for independence.
José Serebrier, "Vocalise," Peer International, 1971, #2160-3.
remarks: an unaccompanied choral vocalise with a melody for everyone;
excellent part writing; about 5 minutes; sensuous, lovely, brooding;
some divisi; challenging but notharsh harmonies; Serebrier was a
world-famous conductor from Uruguay.
Ariel Ramírez, "Misa Criolla," Lawson-Gould #51362;
remarks: 25 minute, multimovement Mass in popular style, each movement
based on a different Argentine folk dancy type; significant
flexible score adaptable to various voicings; instrumental
may vary (guitar, percussion, flute, keyboard, etc); very
recording, Philips, cassette or cd;
Gutiérrez de Padilla, "A la xacara xacarilla, in anthology "Christmas Music in
Baroque Mexico" (Robert Stevenson, ed. Berkley: Univ. of CA Press, 1974).
remarks: A Christmas part-song from the colonial era in Guatemala;

rubberband (1-8 verses); example of a negrillo (based on African
rhythms); minor key, but very appealing if done spritely; instruments
could double verses, add percussion; in Spanish; the volume is full of
good pieces for various voices; mannerist poetry needs explanation;
musica ficta (needs added accidentals).
Juan de Herrera, "Laudate Dominum," in anthology "Antología de la música
colonial en america del sur," (Samuel Claro, ed. Santiago Ediciones de la
Universidad de Santiago de Chile, 1974).
remarks: polychoral (SATB/SATB/SA) motet in Latin, a la Gabrieli's,
the colonial period; needs transposing to lower key; volume
many useful pieces.
Anonymous, "Hanacpachap," in journal "Inter-American Music Review" (Robt.
Stevenson, ed.), Vol. VII, No.1 (Fall-Winter, 1985).
remarks: first published polyphony in New World; a simple processional
hymn; Quechua text (Incan) pronounced as if in Spanish; a good way to
enter and/or exit a concert; added instrumental parts may double
provide percussion, etc.
Fernando Franco, "Parce mihi Domini," Peer International, 1952, catalog #114-8.
remarks: Spanish composer working in Mexico in late 16th century;

recitation-tone type of motet on text from Job (Latin); Robert Snow,
ed.; can be moving if syllabic stress and not-too-slow tempo keep it
alive; gorgeous bouquet of cadences!
Jose Mauricio de Nunes-García, "Laudate Pueri" and "Laudate Dominum,"
Universidad de Brazil, 196?
remarks: mulato composer from Rio in early 1800's, called Brazil's
Mozart; orchestral accompaniment or keyboard; both are rondo's with

charming; good opening pieces on programs with Haydn or Mozart masses;
7 minutes each.
J. M. Nunes-García, "Requiem," Lawson-Gould (piano-vocal; rental orchestral
SATB solos as well; 35 minutes; early Romantic style, definitely

imitating Mozart; beautiful solos, dramatic choruses; wonderful
instrumental solos, too; better not paired with Mozart's Requiem (too
J. G. de Padilla, "Exsultate iusti," G. Schirmer, 196?
remarks: out of print, but get permission; SATB/SATB; 5 minutes;
glorious antiphonal and lots of imitative passages; very appealing;
instruments could double; Robert Stevenson, ed.; recording, Roger

Subject: Compilation: Asian and Latin American pieces

Dear Listers,

This is a compilation of the answers to my query regarding Asian and Latin
American SATB works, including comments when they were given. It is
interesting that I received a number of titles of Latin works, but few
suggestions about Asian pieces. I have also included some addresses sent to
me as possible additional sources. Lawson-Gould and Earthsongs catalogues
were mentioned (which I already knew about), and Third Planet Music (which I
didn't)- 203 California Ave., Santa Cruz CA 95060, 408-426-1968.

Stephen Hatfield: La Lluvia, Boosey & Hawkes- wordless piece based on
Peruvian pan pipe melodies.
Emile Desamours: Papa Nou - to be published soon by Mark Foster
Oscar Escalada- several pieces- especially Tangueando
Sole: Duerme Negrito, Earthsongs- Venezuela
Mendoza: Broatyn las Flores, Alliance Music- Aztec
Bor: El Periquito, Third Planet- Venezuela- GREAT!
Guevarra: Ojos Azules, Third Planet Music
Grau: La Flor de la Miel, Earthsongs, Venezuela
Scliar: Lua, Lua, Earthsongs, Brazil
Motets from Mexican Archives- Peer series, containing 7 motets by Lopez,
Franco, Padilla
Fonseca- War Game/Xire Ogun, Lawson-Gould, Brazil- interesting!
Grau: Kasar mie la gaji, Earthsongs, Brazil/Africa- a classic
Galian: Salseo, Earthsongs, Venezuela
Favero: Te Quiero, Argentina- sort of pop love song, really lovely
Rincon: Bullerengue, Third Planet, Columbia- A MUST!!!
Gutierrez: Alme Llanera, Venezuela- wonderful piece
Estevez: Mata del anima sola- also wonderful
Aguiar: Salmo 150, Brazil- terrific! (mentioned several times)

The following are from Thomas House Publications, edited by William Belan:
Mananitas de mi Tierra
El Punto Guanasteco
Un Beso Y una Flor
Piel Canela

Misa Criolla, Lawson-Gould, was also mentioned, but is too long for my
purposes right now. Shorter sections could be used.

Many thanks to everyone who sent me ideas for Latin song suggestions to
use at the fundraiser that we are doing. I have included the responses
from everyone in the list that follows. It is wonderful that so many of
you are willing to take the time to share your ideas.

Earthsongs had published three Brazilian arrangements, which perhaps
would fill in your
needs. They are: 3 Cantos dos Indios Kraos (3 Songs by Krao Indians), by
Marcos Leite; Muie
Rendera (Lacemaker) by Carlos Alberto Pinto da Fonseca; Lua, Lua (Moon,
Moon) by Esther
Scliar. Those are light and easy pieces suitable in any High School or
Junior High Choir repertoire,
despite the Portuguese! However, if you decide to do them, don't
hesitate in contact me about the
Portuguese pronunciation. I am from Brazil. Although I have been here in
this country since 1996,
my Portuguese still good ;-)!!!! I will be more than happy to help you,

Check out earthsongs publications, specifically the Maria Guinand
and the pieces by Michael Mendoza published by Alliance.

Last year I did a brilliant arrangement of 'Tico
Tico' from the 1940's by Hawley Ades which was, I
think, from the Fred Waring collection originally
published by Shawnee Press. I had a single copy (very
old) and I got Shawnee to agree to my copying it for a
small fee.

I sort of remember that the music of Fred Waring and
the Pennsylvanians had been re-issued or at least
collected and was available. You might want to ask the
list about that as I am sure someone will know.

Here are some selections I have used with my students that embody the
"Latin" flavor:

1. "Mata del Anima Sola" - a secular selection for mixed choir. It's
acappella and rather difficult. There is a tenor solo and then the
choral parts vocalize spanish guitar underneath. It's a magnificent
Lighter, pop tunes:
2. "Hot, Hot, Hot"
3. "When Yuba Played the Rumba On the Tuba" - a hilarious Cuban
There is still an accompaniment trax available for order for
4. "Iko, Iko"
5. "Bidi, Bidi, Bom, Bom" - made popular by Selena, available for

I'm pulling this off the top of my head since all my materials are in my

choral library at school! However, since Ricky Martin hit the scene,
are several Spanish pop selections currently available. There is also a

medley of mambo music. This year, one of my choirs is performing the
from "The Mask of Zorro" in Spanish and it is beautiful. So, my
recommendation is to get on the J.W. Pepper internet choral site and
out the current and new popular and show choir choral selections.

I've got a song call "A Zing-A Za" and is described as a "Brazilian Folk

Song" arranged by Mary Goetze, pub Boosey & Hawkes cat no PCTB6276. The
I have is a 4-pt treble, with percussion and keyboard. It's quite
entertaining - some nice tongue twisters in it too!

If I were doing a somewhat light program featuring "Latin music", I
probably pick styles and genres that come from Brazil, Cuban, Mexican,
maybe some Caribbean background. You might look specifically into
(Trinidad and Tobago), Bossa Nova (Brazil), Son (Cuba), and some type of

Mexican traditional folk song (or Mariachi if there is something
Be careful of very poor arrangements in these areas. There are so many
aberrations, and so few good arrangements when it comes to Latin music
in US
choral literature. It would be a shame to perform pieces that are mild
best in their treatment of any of these styles, like I have seen so
There is a ton more that you could explore, however those that I
are four styles which are pretty accessible and would be more familiar
you and your audience. I would be happy to discuss this a bit if you
the need. I hope I can help you more. This is definitely an area that
have a great interest in seeing done correctly. Congratulations for
choice, and good luck!

check out the Earthsongs website. You can get single copies for half
off and they have cds listed with recordings of the songs on them.
Good Luck.

Yupanqui's Duerme Negrito is a terrific one, rather pop in style. The
mostly sounds like his guitar. It's either Earthsongs or Third Planet
Music. YOu might also look at Rincon's Bullerengue (same publishers),
is based on the Bullerengue dance rhythm. Greatpiece!

I don't know anything in choral music which is meant for dancing. But
into the lighter music of Heitor Villa-Lobos, such as the "Samba
or "Modinha," and others (I don't have them right at hand, but there is
whose title includes the word Estrella). V-L wrote quite a buit in the
popular Samba style. Also, if you have a soloist and a G-O-O-D
(or adapt to piano), there are a number of very attractive songs by the
great Brazilian Guitarist Laurindo Almeida (available through Guitar
Publications in San Franciso).
Of course all are in Brazilian Portuguese, but done in the "Carrioco"
accent of Rio, they are delicious.

My wife is Linda Spevacek. I showed her your email and she suggested
Spanish Fiesta. Here is a link to the JW Pepper site to look at the
two pages and a link that has the entire recording. Spanish Fiesta is
available in 2 Part. If this looks interesting let us know and we will
a complimentary copy in the mail.

Spanish Fiesta (opt*)
Musical snapshot

Panama national composer, Georges R. Colbourne (who is a pupil of Roque
Así (Bolero), Blessed be God (Calypso), and Las Torres de San Felipe
of popular and traditional choral music, excelent work, I recommend this

one); one from Colombia (Bullerengue); and one from Argentina (Entre el
espanto y la ternura [Between fright and tenderness]),

I am looking for sacred music for a concert at my church called Music of the Americas. It will tie in with a lecture and art exhibit of Guatemalan blouses (huipiles). One of the pieces I need is something from the Renaissance or Baroque era in Latin that would have been done in the cathedrals in a basically European style. But other selections could be more indigenous, from throughout Central and South America and in Spanish. I will have various choirs, children, youth and adults on the program so a variety of voicings is needed as well.

Any help you can give in finding scores would be appreciated.

Fructos del Castillos - Monstra Te Esse Matrem (Mexico also, I think) - these are maybe 17th

If you want festive Mexican baroque in Latin, the person to go to is Craig Russell at Cal Polytech.
He's the expert, and he knows the rep backwards and forwards because he's edited it and performed it
all. He did all the stuff on Chanticleer's Mexican Baroque CD. You can find him at the cal poly

As a choir singer from Puerto Rico, I have the chance to sing some sacral music composed by Father Abel Di Marco. He has done beutiful pieces also in secular music.

Ruben Colon-Tarrats has composed a lot of arrangements and compositions based in traditional puertorrican music. His arrangements and compositions are greatly appreciated in the Puerto Rico choral scene.
