SCHOLA GREGORIANA HISPANA
F. Javier Lara, director

 

From the choir books of Cisneros to the plainchant of Mexico Cathedral

 

This concert wants to commemorate two important anniversaries: 500 years after the death of Cardinal Cisneros (Torrelaguna, Madrid, 1436-Roa, Burgos, 1517) and 500 years (1517) of the expedition by Andalusian military Francisco Hernández de Córdoba to the coast of the Yucatan. For this, two blocks of works will be performed: Cantorales mozárabes de Cisneros and polyphony of the time; and the living tradition of plainchant in the Cathedral of Mexico followed by two polyphonic works by authors born in Spain and later settled in Mexico and Guatemala.
