Music played an enormously important role in the day-to-day life of a Mexican cathedral, occupying a central place in not only the Mass, but also other daily services like Vespers and Matins. This year’s installment of the annual performance of Latin American early music will feature a musical tour of four of Mexico’s most musically prominent cathedrals: Mexico City, Oaxaca, Puebla and Durango. Secular and sacred works will be by Salazar, Sumaya, Jerúsalem, Billoni and more - including a number of pieces that have not been performed since they were composed. There will be an informal pre-concert talk at 3:30 p.m.
