Canciones y villanescas espirituales
iQue buen afio es el del cielo!
Alma, gozalde,
pues del cielo ay pan en el suelo
y danlo de balde.
Alma, llegad a gustar,
que solamente a de costar
el llegar limpiamente.
Se quereis gozar del cielo,
alma, gustadle,
pues del cielo ay pan en el suelo
y danlo de balde.
Francisco Guerrero
What a great year is that of heaven!
Soul, enjoy it,
for down from heaven there's bread on earth,
and it's given for free.
Soul, come and taste,
for all that it costs
is that you arrive pure.
If you want to the joy of heaven,
soul, taste it,
for down from heaven there's bread on earth,
and it's given for free.

Go where I send thee!
arr. Paul Caldwell and Sean Ivory
Go Where I Send Thee! is based on a familiar African-American spiritual. The arrangers have expanded a text that is
preserved with many variants. In this version the numbers one through twelve represent many significant Biblical characters,
from "One for the little bitty baby born in Bethlehem" to "Twelve for the twelve disciples."
