Austin Baroque Orchestra & Chorus presents "España Antigua, Nueva España"

When: Sat., Nov. 3, 8-10 p.m. 2018

The Spanish sought to create a “New Spain” in what is today Mexico and the southwestern United States, and this included the composition of appropriate music for their new churches. Soon, cathedral archives became filled with works that would rival those found in Old Spain herself. The San Fernando Cathedral will commemorate the 300th anniversary of San Antonio’s founding with 16th and 17th century music from both Old and New Spain, including works by Morales, Lôbo, Flecha, Padilla, and Sumaya, and featuring the Texas premiere of Francisco López Capillas’s "Missa de Batalla."
