A Fall Workshop with Eileen Hadidian
Nueva España, Music in the New World
9 am – 4 pm, Saturday, October 11, 2008
(plans pending for a larger venue if needed)
This workshop is a special opportunity to discover an exciting but
neglected repertoire – the musical encounter between the Spanish and
native American cultures, which incorporated the best of both worlds to
create a musical style that is unique to the Americas.
We will play sacred and secular music from South America, Mexico and the
California missions – mass, motet, dance music and secular villancicos.
Composers include, among others, Juan de Lienas, called the Mexican
Palestrina, Pedro Bermudez and Gaspar Fernandes (Mexico), Manuel de
Zumaya (Guatemala), Juan Pérez Bocanegra (Peru), Gutierre Fernandez
Recorders, viols, singers, players of chordal instruments (guitar, folk
harp), and other melody and string instruments such as flute, violin and
cello are welcome. Ability to read music and chord charts is highly
recommended for chordal instruments.
There is a participation limit of 30, so please send your non-refundable
