Canções de Cordialidade

These five songs of celebration were based on poems by Manuel Bandeira:

  1. Feliz aniversario (Happy Birthday)
  2. Boas festas (Best Wishes)
  3. Feliz natal (Happy Christmas)
  4. Feliz ano novo (Happy New Year)
  5. Boas vindas (Welcome)

The a cappella group Madrigal InCanto sing Feliz Natal, at a November 2009 concert.

This piece is obviously well-known in Brazil, since the audience join in for the last verse.
