Escolania de Montserrat: El cant dels ocells

Lluís Travesset is the soloist of this performance of  the much-loved Catalan Christmas song and lullaby El cant dels ocells (Song of the birds) at a concert given at Santa Maria in Trastevere, Rome, in 2012. It’s a charming piece that like the the beautiful old Castilian carol "Brincan y bailan" ("They jump and dance") about which I wrote here back in 2011 (see: Escolanía del Escorial – Brincan y bailan – (Traditional Castilian Carol) | Saturday Chorale) tells of nature’s joy at learning of the birth of Jesus Christ in a stable in Bethlehem.  Enjoy :-)
