Spanish Elisions in Liturgical Music

An elision is the omission of a sound or syllable when speaking. In Spanish songs, we frequently see this happen when one word ends with a vowel and the following word starts with a vowel. Those vowel sounds are slurred together in the music and condensed when sung. Learn more and practice some Spanish elisions in liturgical music in this video from Anna Betancourt.
