A Mexican Christmas: Angels in the Convent, Dancing in the Streets
Imagine yourself in 17th-century Mexico City. It’s Christmas and the glorious singing of cloistered nuns soars over the walls of their convent and fills the square. On the other side of the plaza, a street band plays villancicos — joyful folk music of praise and celebration.
This sumptuous program will feature a choir of women’s voices, directed by Ellen Hargis, singing the music of the convent, as well as musicians from EnsAmble Ad-Hoc, a group that specializes in Latin American and Spanish early music led by specialists Francy Acosta and Jose Luis Posada. These musicians will create the rich, jubilant folk music that would have been heard in the plazas at Christmas.
