Celebrate the holiday with this program abounding with festive music exported to 18th-century Central and South America! Selections include lively Spanish villancicos, ornate Italian cantatas, and rhythmically-playful works with indigenous influences. Castellanos, Durán, Jerusalem, Pacheco, and Torres are among the featured composers.
With Jessica Petrus, soprano, and Catherine Hedberg, mezzo-soprano, and special guest Eloy Cruz (Mexico), Baroque guitar
