Language:

  
The book Cantar o Natal / Cantar la Navidad contains 16 Christmas carols from different countries, 4 instrumental pieces, and a cantata with original melodies. The songs are harmonized for 2 treble voices. The arrangements for Orff instruments are based on ostinato techniques and have a medium degree of difficulty. The instrumental pieces, in pastoral form, allow variety between the songs. The carols are presented in their original language (English, Flemish, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese) and also in singable translations in both Portuguese and Spanish.

The Christmas Cantata for narrator, voices and Orff instruments, combines Gospel texts with texts adapted from the traditional Portuguese poetry. The cantata can be performed in concert style and, if possible, also in dramatic style.

The book is addressed to students and teachers of general schools and music schools, as well as to youth ensembles, using Orff instruments.
