“Musica del Cielo: Sacred Music of Spain and the New World” Date:Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011
Time: 6:30 p.m. Sacred Music Location: Old St. Joseph Church, St. Norbert College
Performed by the St. Norbert College Music Department
In Música del Cielo, members of the St. Norbert College Music Department explore the rich history of music that springs from the sacred traditions of Spain and the New World. Student and faculty performers will present an exciting tapestry of musical selections – ranging from the meditative sounds of Medieval chant to the infectious rhythms and appealing harmonies of Hispanic music today. Through solo voices, Spanish guitar, brass instruments, and choral musicians, we hope to share the powerful and prayerful variety of sacred Hispanic and Latino music throughout history, and to celebrate the joyful spirit of the Spanish church.
