Music of New Spain:
Exploring California’s Missions and Mexico’s Cathedrals
The rich musical legacy of colonial Mexico and Alta California is preserved in the libraries of our cathedrals and missions. Their archives are troves of great and sometimes unique music from the 16th through the early 19th centuries, from refined Spanish polyphony to rollicking villancicos, with many excellent works written here in the New World. Enjoy a small sample from this musical cornucopia.
