The Newberry Consort has focused on Early music from Spain and New Spain (as present day Mexico was known when it was a part of the Spanish empire). The recordings featured in this program underscore the continuity of Colonial music as a part of the tradition of western music, including some pieces that were performed for the first time in 300 years.
