An original composition on a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas nativity text, O Brillante Estrella is in the style of a villancico, a lively Spanish carol. Colorful harmonies, syncopated rhythms, and flamboyant accompaniment help to capture the Spanish and Latin American spirit of this engaging piece.

 


Customer Reviews

"This piece is a very interesting addition to our christmas repertoire. It is unusually unique due to its latin stylings of puerto rican origins. It doesn't fit the typical "christmas song" bill. The rhythms and harmonies provide for a challenging experience for students, while the language encourages expression and a means for students to truly engage in the meaning of the carol. I would recommend this piece for any high school choir looking for a more challenging piece to delight an unexpecting audience."
