What's on Great Sacred Music, Sunday, June 24, 2012

Location: North Carolina, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
Music from the Mexican and Bolivian Baroque this week. Scholars are just beginning to analyze and publish the music from the cathedral libraries all over Latin America. It seems that the Spaniards imported entire episcopal and arch-episcopal staffs including composers and performers after they seized control of Central and South America. They built grand cathedrals and demanded equally grand music to accompany the liturgies. We shall sample music from that era this morning on Great Sacred Music. Thank you for your support.
