Los Peces En El Rio

21 December 2014

The classic villancico navideño from medieval Spain… while usually recorded today by children´s choirs, and slowed down to be “respectful”, I expect this version is more in the original style.  What I always liked about Los Pesces is the very Iberian sensibility that accepts the facts of life as normal, even when the life is that of Jesus.  What attracts the little fishes to the surface, where they glorify the “newborn king” is something so obvious that the Bible stories all missed it… his mommy had to wash out His diapers.
