Composed by

Trad. Latin American

Arranged By

Janelle Zook Cunalata

Edited By

J. Cameron Law

This arrangement was written to celebrate a popular Latin American Carol, “Los Peces en el Rio”, translated as, “Fish in the River.”  In a nutshell, the song is about fish in a river that swim by Mary, Joseph and the newborn child, Jesus.  The fish swim back and forth in the river hoping for a glimpse of the baby. The slurred eighth notes depict the fish swimming relentlessly, the staccato notes symbolize rain droplets, as fish would hear it underwater, and the Latin American Carol, “Los Peces en el Rio” is heard over the swimming and droplets.  Enjoy the enchanting, minor tonality piece for string orchestra.
