Mexican Splendours

Sacred music at the puebla cathedral

Ensemble La Chimera
Eduardo Egüez – direction

The program unveils the polychoral splendors of 17th century New Spain, specifically those of the choirmasters of the prestigious Cathedral of Puebla, pride of the Spanish crown.

The sacred music composed for the religious festivities in Puebla shows the formidable syncretism merging local traditions from pre-Columbian rhythms and dances, traditions of the African populations who arrived in South America as slaves, and European heritage carried by the Jesuit missions.

Mexican Splendours was created at the Festival de la Chaise Dieu in 2018 and was enthusiastically acclaimed by the public.
