Nueva España: Music from the New World
Guest director, Tom Zajac, will bring together the combined vocal and instrumental forces for TEMP's first concert this season in a program of music from colonial Latin America; works first heard in the cathedrals, missions and haciendas of what is now Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, and Guatamala. The music spans from the earliest surviving sources of the mid-16th century to the late-17th. The main style represented in the October 20th concert will be the villancico, a song form known for its zestful rhythms, achingly-beautiful melodies and interesting, sometimes humorous texts. Along side the villancicos will be heard beautiful sacred works including the monumental Salve Regina of Juan Gutierrez de Padilla, and instrumental works, performed on recorders, viols, guitar theorbo and harpsichord. The singers, in a virtuoso display, will sing in Spanish, Portuguese, Latin, Nahuatl, Quechua, and African-inflected Spanish.

As part of TEMP's commitment to charitable community outreach, a portion of the price of each ticket will be donated to Arte Sana.
Arte Sana is a nonprofit agency for underserved survivors of gender and racial violence that promotes healing and empowerment through the arts and community education. Their main service population is refugee and immigrant women from Central and South America.

Music of Medieval Germany : Hildegard von Bingen and the original "Carmina Burana" - here's perhaps your only chance this year to hear the original "Carmina Burana". All the passion, all the excitement - all within a rich and delicate musical tapestry that has outlived by centuries the modern "sing-your-head-Orff" we now know as Carmina Burana. Come and explore with us the beauty of the real thing.  Also, the music of the famous abbess, composer, and mystic Hildegard von Bingen is both virtuosic and pious, straightforward in its devotion and yet stunningly beautiful and affecting.
