El Noi de la Mare 'The Son of the Virgin'

First line:
Qué li darem a n'el Noi de la Mare?
Catalan traditional carol
author of text

This tender Catalan lullaby, believed to be of sixteenth-century origin, is a folk-song with seasonal text, its style reflecting the musical culture of Catalonia. Devotees of the guitar will recognize the melody as a favourite John Williams recital encore (it was originally transcribed by the great Spanish guitarist Miguel Llobet). The present arrangement was written especially for Clara Sanabras, soloist in the 2006 Christmas Festival.
