2006 Welcome Christmas! Carol Winner
Diego Luzuriaga’s “Un Nacimiento” (A Nativity Scene) has both music and lyrics by the composer. With its Latin American flavor, the carol captures the beauty and calm of an Ecuadorian ‘coplas’ (folksong). Luzuriaga was born in Loja, Ecuador, and studied at the Quito Conservatory, the École Normale in Paris, the Manhattan School of Music and Columbia University in New York. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1993 and has received commissions from ensembles and orchestras spanning the globe.
