About the Song: Commonly heard during Christmas, this two-part paso doble carol is arranged for band and choral accompaniment for chamber orchestra by Lucio D. San Pedro in 1976. It shifts from minor to major tonality and is often the final song of the misa de aguinaldo or dawn mass. (From the CCP Encyclopedia of Philippine Art, v. 6, p. 264)
