Called The Tenth Muse and Mexican Phoenix, the nun Sor Juana Ines De la Cruz is considered one of the finest poets of the Spanish New World Golden Age. She was also a philosopher, scholar and composer. Her life will be depicted through music, artwork and poetry readings.
Crescendo collaborates with El Fuego, an early music ensemble from North Carolina, in a program designed by their Artistic Director, Salome Sandoval. The program features a selection of sacred and secular cantatas from the 1600s New World Colonies, featuring vocal compositions by Tomas de Torrejon y Velasco and his contemporaries.
Performers are the Crescendo Vocal Ensemble, Salome Sandoval (voice, baroque guitar and archlute), Malina Rauschenfels (voice and violoncello), and Christine Gevert (organ and direction).
