Description: El Jarabe Tapatío is literally translated as "sweet syrup" since it is a mixture of many Mexican folk tunes combined in celebration of the end of the Mexican Revolution. Linda has done a masterful job of using many handbell techniques to accurately express the style of the work. This arrangement is comprised of six different folk tunes from various Mexican states and is reflective of the work as it is typically performed. The arranger suggests researching El Jarabe on line for more background to this wonderful collection of folk tunes.
