Commissioned by the San Francisco symphony, this three movement suite of folk songs well known in Mexico comes in three separate voicings: SATB, SSAA, and TTBB. A piano accompaniment is provided although the original scoring can also be used. (Guitar, two violins, and double bass or piano.) The Spanish texts straddle the macabre and the humorous in a way that is charming and engaging. Full translations are provided in the forward.
