These three SATB a cappella settings are very accessible yet are sophisticated enough for a more advanced choir. Suggestions are also given for simple rhythm instrument accompaniment for the first two carols. “Riu, Riu, Chiu” is a delightful 16th century Spanish carol that can be performed in English, Spanish or in alternating languages between verses and choruses. “A la Puerta del Cielo” lullaby with optional solo. “Ya Viene la Vieja” is folk carol from Andalusia prior to the l9th century.
