TextTexts based on anonymous Quechua-Peruvian poetry
For a cappella SSAA youth choir or SSAA women’s choir. Two Mountain Songs, premiered in a joint performance by the San Francisco Girls Chorus and the Young People’s Chorus, is inspired by Peruvian folk song from the northern Andes. It freely adapts poetry as collected by the folklorist José María Arguedas, who was an advocate for the Quechua Indian people, the descendants of the once-powerful Incas. The lyricism, repetitive melodic forms, and rhythms are wholly original while inspired by the music of this small yet beautiful Andean nation. — Gabriela Lena Frank
