Voyage of a Manuscript with La Compañia

  • Isabella Fraser Room State Library of Victoria Melbourne Australia (map)

Cristina joins renowned Renaissance band, LaCompañia exploring the music of 16th Century Spain. In 1595 the Spaniard Pedro Bermúdez makes an epic sea voyage to the Americas with nothing but his most precious music manuscripts. Fast forward 400 years, and now the Australian premier of his ‘Missa de Bomba’ will be performed side-by-side with the inspiration for this work, the intriguing Ensalada ‘La Bomba’ by Matheo Flecha. These two dramatic pieces with themes of shipwrecks and devotion will form the centrepiece of this program along with other splendid songs from Spain & the New World.
