12 Carols: Riu, Riu, Chiu

Carol #12, Riu, Riu, Chiu, is a traditional 16th-century Spanish carol, though it may have originally been written in Portuguese. It has a dancing tempo and a nice, albeit confusing story about being protected, like God protected Jesus.

It’s a fun song you may have heard at a madrigal dinner, if you’ve ever been to one.

Merry Christmas!
