Latin America’s music world is known for being vivacious and diverse, whereby Christmas music is often European-influenced. Canta Navidad brings together 14 songs that are secular, traditional and folkloric and convey a wonderful impression of the Christmas music culture of Latin America. This choral cantata tells the Christmas story on the basis of different Latin American music styles – from Argentina to Mexico – in four parts:

  1. Advent and Annunciation
  2. The Shepherds
  3. Birth of Jesus
  4. After the Birth and Ephiphany

In addition to the original lyrics in Portuguese, Spanish or Quechua, all the songs in this collection include a singable German and English translation. The part settings for mixed choir SATB or SAB are mostly kept simple – some arrangements are close to the original and others are somewhat more sophisticated. The focus on the typical styles and rhythms of Latin America should always have priority. OR: The focus is on the typical styles and rhythms from Latin America.

The full score contains the piano part and the percussion parts (as part of the full score and as photocopiables) as well as photocopiables for the children's choir. A children's choir can also be included in a performance of the Christmas cantata.
