Jouyssance: a Musical Journey To Nueva España

Jouyssance: a Musical Journey To Nueva España

This early music choir continues to explore the fascinating and complex repertoire of early choral music from the Americas.

In the vein of its popular Spirit Child programs, Jouyssance Early Music Ensemble continues to explore fabulous early choral music from “Nueva España.” In addition to excerpts from the first New World opera, this program features a host of secular and sacred music by Franco, Araujo, Fernandes, Velasco, Padilla and others. Jouyssance will be joined by guest musicians Martha Masters (guitar) and Shanon Zusman (bass/viola da gamba).

Each performance will be preceded by a free lecture on music in New Spain by Dr. John Koegel, Professor of Musicology at Csu Fullerton and expert in colonial-era Latin American music.
