The choir's multicultural concert at the Chemistry Department

Today the choir performed at the Facultad de Química (Chemistry Department) at the UNAM. 

I think this was our most international/ multicultural program yet. We only had 2 songs in Spanish! The program included: 

Salve Regina - Lars Jansson, arranged by Gunnar Eriksson (in Latin) 
Bogoróditse Djévo - Arvo Pärt (in Russian) 
Daemon irrepit callidus - Gyorgy Orbán (in Latin) 
Magos a rutafa - Lajos Bárdos (in Hungarian)      
Pletykázó - Gyorgy Ligeti (in Hungarian) 
Kalkagunga Yurdu - William Barton, arranged by Gordon Hamilton (in an aboriginal language from an area in the north of Australia, with didgeridoo rhythms and syllables) 
Kasar mie lagaji - Alberto Grau (in an African dialect - not sure which)            
Naranjitay - traditional Bolivian song, arranged by Luis Graff (in Spanish)                   
Louva a Deus - music by Milton Nascimento, arranged by Sergio Sansao (in Portuguese)       
Peze Kafe - traditional Haitian song, arranged by Sten K. (in Haitian Creole) 
Prende la vela - folkloric song from Colombia, music by Lucho Bermúdez, arrangement by Alberto Carbonell (in Spanish)
