About the Music

Explore the rich and diverse history of Spanish music and its influences from medieval through modern; a sonic world where stylistically iconic musical forms, complex rhythms and harmonies abound.

Pilgrimage songs, cancioneros from the Spanish royal courts, polyphonic masters of the renaissance and Baroque from Flecha to Victoria as well as a new generation of composers.

Detours to Rome where many a composer looked for musical inspiration, and the new world--Olé!

Opportunities for low-voice instruments will be plentiful!
