Washington National Cathedral

Cathedral Choral Society and Washington Bach Consort join forces to celebrate baroque music from Mexico City’s Cathedral, extraordinary music resulting from a collision of cultures.

When the Spanish conquistadors overran Tenochtitlan and established Mexico City, they built a European-style Cathedral directly on top of an Aztec temple; over time, it became a place for music that blended Catholicism with the indigenous cultures of the region. Baroque music emerged with a uniquely North American flavor, and it is this beauty and diversity that CCS and WBC celebrate in a musical love letter from one great Cathedral to another. Featuring Ignacio de Jerusalem’s astounding Mass for Double Choir. Learn More»
