LA REAL CAPILLA DEL PÓPULO

(FeMAUB Artist 2017 and 2020)

Jorge Enrique García Ortega, director – Verónica Plata and Cristina Bayón, sopranos. Gabriel Díaz, alto – Víctor Cruz, baritone

Polyphonic Mass (liturgical celebration): First Sunday of Advent in the diocese of Jaén


This concert, framed in the celebration of the Liturgy, offers a hypothetical reconstruction of the Mass of the First Sunday of Advent from composers and repertoires linked to the diocese of Jaén. As a basis will be used the Mass Veni Sponsa Christi (8vv) by Juan Manuel de la Puente, chapel master of the Cathedral of Jaén. Along with a spectacular Beatus vir for 10 voices in three choirs by the same author rescued for the occasion and acting as an final piece, throughout the ceremony we can hear pieces by Francisco Guerrero and two works by Jorge Enrique García Ortega, one of which has been expressly composed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the FeMAUB: the Salve Regina “al estilo antiguo”

Jorge Enrique García Ortega, director

Jorge Enrique García Ortega, alto and conductor. Born in Cádiz, he joined the Escolanía Municipal Añil under the direction of Marcelino Díez at an early age. After qualifying as a flute professor at the conservatory Rafael Orozco in Córdoba, he studied singing at the conservatories Léo Délibes and Marcel Dupré (with Carole Bajac) in Paris. He started out in the world of historical singing by studying with Howard Crook and he also joined the Baroque Choir of Andalusia. Richard Levitt (in Bassel) and Carlos Mena are among his professors. He obtained a Degree in Singing from the Trinity College in London (2011) and has worked with recognized conductors such as Diego Fasolis, Eduardo López Banzo, LluísVilamajó, YannikNezet-Seguin and Philipp Herreweghe, performing in Europe, Latin America and United States. He is the director of both the vocal ensemble Virelay (music chapel of Cádiz Cathedral) and the training project Bravissimo Music Lab in Cádiz.

La Real Capilla del Pópulo. This group was founded as a training project connected to the vocal ensemble Virelay (music chapel of Cádiz Cathedral), with the purpose of applying historicist criteria to the performance of the Hispanic repertoire, drawing on original sources (both música de facistol and música a papeles) and male voices exclusively. It has recently become a stable and independent vocal ensemble with a repertoire which ranges from the Middle Ages to the disappearance of the traditional music chapels in early twentieth century. Its singers, as members of the vocal ensemble Virelay, have participated in a variety of recording projects, such as the four-disc series Archivo musical de la Catedral de Cádiz, which includes the first recordings of music by chapel masters of Cádiz Cathedral. As an independent group they have recently recorded their first CD (Sociedad Española de Musicología, 2020), devoted to Antonio Juanas (1762/63-1822?), the last chapel master of Mexico Cathedral in the colonial period.
