This energetic setting, which is actually gaining popularity in American hymnals, is easily accessible to a variety of choirs. Available also in SSA (Unison) or Two-Part Treble editions, it could be a great introduction to the music of Argentina. The highly rhythmic piano part often doubles the vocal lines, and the recommended addition of South American hand percussion, help to emphasize some of the more complex rhythms. This work could easily find a home in school or church programs, from children to adults.
