The following seventeen hymns or himnos are to be found in Santa Clara Choral Book, as indicated by the page number given in parentheses. For instance, (CB, 65) means that the hymn transcribed can be found on page 65 of the Choral Book. The text is in Spanish, and the original notation appears in square notes on afa or ut clef, as in the rest of the Choral Book. I have transcribed all of these himnos into modem notation , in as many as four voice parts, as indicated in the Choral Book. Only the first strophe of each hymn is directly written in with the music; any additional strophes appear separately, beneath the musical staves. My transcription of the full Spanish lyrics of each hymn follows the musical transcriptions. A complete set of English translations, guided by the thoughtful and expert assistance of Margarita Delgado, is included.
