Artist Enrique Vazquez Castro composed this soft melody and Auxiliary Bishop of Madrid, Cesar Franco, wrote the lyrics, approved in May by the Vatican.

To hear the song performed live, you’ll have to wait until November 9th, when the city of Madrid celebrates Our Lady of Almudena  - its feast day. The song will be performed live for the first time by the Edith Stein Choir.
