Thanks Choralisters,

Several of you responded to my request for information on choral music in Spanish. Here is a summary/compilation of the responses:

>From: Jorge Hernán Arango García, jorgeag(a)

>Me puedes escribir a mi en español, te puedo colaborar con lo que quieras,
>soy director de coro en Medellín - Colombia.

>From: laura lane, lllane(a)

>Earthsongs has several excellent pieces in Spanish, and not terribly
>difficult. The best one I've done so far is Mata del anima sola--you

>school choir or church choir could do it. And it's a LOT of fun--it
>was my college choir's favorite piece last spring. You can call Ron

"Dark-haired Lady" incorporates a beloved Spanish folk song that begins with the Lord's Prayer. However, it's not a sacred song - far from it. It's really about a young man who is distracted from his prayers by the beautiful head of a hair of a lady nearby. Easy SAB with women's trio and piano. Percussive instruments optional. Go to and click on the repertoire list.

"Yo No Soy Yo" is set to a poem by Juan Ram

If you'd like to sent a score for either "Dark-haired Lady" or "Yo No Soy Yo", e-mail and we can send you a .pdf file.
