Heat up your winter nights with the fiery music of Latin America! The Boston Choral Ensemble is excited to present VOCES LATINAS, an esoteric collection of choral works too-often neglected north of the Rio Grande!
VOCES LATINAS offers a taste of contemporary choral works by Latin American composers including Chavez, Villa-lobos, and Ginastera. Experience the passion and vitality of Ginastera's Lamentations (Hieremiæ prophetæ lamentationes), the striking simplicity of Villa-Lobos' Bendita Sabedoria and the poetry of Chavez's Three Nocturnes. This performance is guaranteed to ignite sparks powerful enough to drive away the winter's chill!
