“This is a love poem like many others. I wrote “Adoración” for piano-and-vocals. After that, I arranged it for choirs, and it received a favorable reception because it is easy to perform but also because of the link between harmony and rhythm. The four voices are on an independent melody which can be sung alone, that’s why it is easy to learn.
Its 3/4 time is a characteristic of romantic ballades. It is often found in Latin America, particularly in Mexico, Venezuela, Peru, and Colombia. In fact, this is a “Romanza” about love enhanced as a true feeling.”
