A la Nanita Nana is a traditional Spanish villancico (Christmas carol) in which the the words “A la nanita nana” are similar to the English “lullay” or “lullaby.” The object of the lyrics is the infant Jesus: “A la nanita nana, nanita ea, nanita ea, Mi Jesus Tiene Sueño, bendito sea, bendito sea” (Lullaby, lullaby; sleep, sleep, my little Jesus; may peace attend thee”).
This is a highly playable and charming arrangement in which all members of the ensemble enjoy the opportunity to play both melodic lines and supporting rhythmic/harmonic parts.
