Spotless Rose, Mother of God, Star of the Sea, Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of Heaven… Over the centuries, the Virgin Mary has come to represent the Feminine Divine with a thousand faces, and nowhere more so than in Latin America, where a unique blending of Indigenous, African, and European religious and cultural traditions has come together to create works of unmatched joy, reverence, and beauty. Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Cecilia Duarte and percussionist Antonio Gomez join Stephen Stubbs and Pacific MusicWorks’ band of strings, harp, guitar, percussion, and organ for a festive holiday celebration of music devoted to Mary from Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, Brazil, and Peru, from exquisite Renaissance motets to boisterous folk dances.
