FREE ZOOM EVENT: Consider the Source – Reconstructing the Lienas Vespers with Ellen Hargis
Saturday January 30, 2021: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST
Ten years ago, I began my exploration of the Newberry Library’s Mexican Choirbooks, a rare treasure from the Convento de la Encarnación in Mexico City. Five years later I began work on reconstructing the music for a Vespers service from the Choirbooks featuring compositions by native composer Juan de Lienas. Then, two years ago we recorded a CD of this music, now ready for release Feb. 5, 2021!
