SATB a cappella, solo, and percussion. A medieval Spanish carol (here in English) that is tons of fun to sing!
'Riu, riu, chiu' was a traditional call of the Basque shepherds guarding their flocks. The text (originally in Spanish) is built around strong images of the shepherd as God the Father, lamb that he protects as the Virgin Mary and the wolf as Satan. The original Spanish may be found in the New Oxford Book of Carols (1992).
