This Christmas carol is famous in Venezuela, and its composer Modesta Bor was well-known for Spanish people. She lived in Mérida, Venezuela. She composed many choir works and arranged many folk songs or songs coming from folklore. In “Las estrellas del cielo,” harmonic writing alternates with the imitation writing of the verses’ voice accompaniment. “Plin” (French pronunciation) imitates the sound of plucked strings and “ron” (English pronunciation) imitates the sound of bass.
