Part III consists of Mexican Songs. Movement 7 combines two songs, Las Mananitas, which a birthday serenade sung early in the day, and A la Puerto del Cielo, a Basque lullaby that came to New Mexico from the Pyrenees Mountains of Spain. Altered chords are added to Las Mananitas as well as Mexican sounding accompaniment figures. After a modulation, A la Puerta del Cielo is stated in an ethereal manner. The tempo then increases and the two songs are combined contrapuntally. After a recapitulation of Las Mananitas, a coda using the last phrase of A la Purta del Cielo serves as an "amen". The last movement, Cielito Lindo, begins traditionally. After the first statement of the verse, the music is repeated in new keys for each phrase. A traditional setting of the chorus is followed by an imitative, modulatory setting of the verse phrases. The chorus, accompanied by Mariachi style strumming in the guitar brings the piece to a rousing conclusion.
