Many will recognize this traditional Catalonian carol as one of Pablo Casals's recital encores — and yes, Chris de Silva includes a cello part here! A wordless introduction sets a mysterious tone to this Christmas lullaby with bird song hinted at in the soprano and alto sections. This piece is hauntingly beautiful.
