There will be two versions to the song. One is the official version which will be this music. The other version is of a pop genre to be sung by the Choir of Getafe.

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.
