"Thanksgivings for Life and Love."
Works by some of Spain’s most remarkable Renaissance composers such as Tomas Luis de Victoria, Francisco Guerrero and Antonio Lobo are featured. In contrast, choral and instrumental arrangements based on Latin American folk melodies by Carlos Guastavino (Argentina), Violeta Parra and Victor Jara (Chile) will be performed.
The Crescendo Vocal Ensemble are joined by Alturas Duo (Carlos Boltes, charango and viola, Scott Hill, guitar) and Gonzalo Cortes (quena, zampoña and percussion), as well as tenor and quena player Ignacio Ugarte from Barcelona, Spain. Crescendo Artistic Director Christine Gevert directs from the organ, with Hideki Yamaya on theorbo.
