Jarana (Ring Praise Unto Thee)
This festive piece, though fast, is relatively easy to perform. The meter changes are the challenge. Though frequent, all meter changes are from one simple meter to another (6/4, 4/4, 3/4 and 2/4). The work is characterized by sudden "stops," in fact Jarana is a hybrid dance of the Yucatan. A suggested alternate title for church use is "Ring Praise Unto Thee."
