This is a fairly easy SAB arrangement of a traditional Spanish Christmas carol. The men’s part has alternate notes for use in the case of adolescent males for whom the A2 may be out of range. The guitar accompaniment is also meant to be simple. The guitars play quarter notes. On the first beat of each measure the thumb picks an alternating bass pattern (duplicating the contrabass part). On beats two and three, the index finger (on the third string), middle finger (on the second string) and ring finger (on the first string) simultaneously pluck a three-note chord. Note: the words "venid" and "llegad" end with the soft consonant "d". This is an antiquated form of the infinitive of the verb. This final "d" is lightly pronounced with the tongue placed bi-dentally, similar to pronouncing a hard "th".

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
