“Sublime Love” The life of the Mexican nun, Sor Juana Ine´s de la Cruz in 17th century Latin American Music, Poetry and Images

Called ‘The Tenth Muse’ and ‘Mexican Phoenix,’ the nun Sor Juana Ine´s De la Cruz is considered one of the finest poets of the Spanish New World Golden Age. She was also a philosopher, scholar and composer. Her life will be depicted through music, artwork and poetry readings.

Crescendo collaborates with “El Fuego,” an early music ensemble from North Carolina, in a program designed by their Artistic Director, Salome´ Sandoval. The program features a selection of sacred and secular cantatas from the 1600s New World Colonies, featuring vocal compositions by Toma´s de Torrejo´n y Velasco and his contemporaries.
Performers are the Crescendo Vocal Ensemble, Salome´ Sandoval (voice, baroque guitar and archlute), Malina Rauschenfels (voice and violoncello), and Christine Gevert (organ and direction).
