Two Cathedrals: Baroque Splendor from Mexico City

October 22, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

$20 – $98

When the Spanish conquistadors overran Tenochtitlan and established Mexico City, they built a European-style Cathedral directly on top of an Aztec temple; over time, it became a place for music that blended Catholicism with the indigenous cultures of the region. Baroque music emerged with a uniquely North American flavor, and it is this beauty and diversity that CCS and the Washington Bach Consort celebrate in a musical love letter from one great Cathedral to another. Featuring Ignacio de Jerusalem’s astounding Mass for Double Choir.
