Child So Lovely
An optional percussion part for claves and maracas and an optional chime part for 2 to 3-octaves are both included in this arrangement of a Venezuelan Christmas folk melody. Carolers, who in return for their song expect treats or small gifts, sing this song. The music gives gifts of its own with rich and various articulations and rhythmic challenges. Performance notes give additional suggestions for effective execution of the music. One Hundred and fourteen measures.
