Event Description
Villancicos and polyphonic repertoire from 17th c. Mexico Polyphonic liturgical and para-liturgical music had an extraordinary development in 17th century New Spain, where composers from Spain, Italy and Mexico, found a fertile ground to create. Hundreds of works were composed and imported for ecclesiastical services and festivities, as well as for the theatre and other secular institutions. We will learn about the main musical archives where thousands of works have been kept until today: Mexico City Cathedral, Durango, Oaxaca and Puebla cathedrals among them. We will play polyphonic music examples in 4 to 5 parts, including hymns with texts in original languages like Náhuatl, villancicos and chansonettas by Gaspar Fernández, Fray Jerónimo González, Juan García de Céspedes, Antonio de Salazar and Hernando Franco, that make extensive and fun use of syncopated rhythms and hemiolas.
