The profound impact of European exploration.
In the year 1492 three caravels set sail from Spain. In the search for new trade routes, the discovery of the Americas had far-reaching consequences and profoundly affected both European societies and the Indigenous communities of the “New World”. Concurrently, other significant changes unfolded across Europe, including the surrender of Granada and the expulsion of Muslim and Jewish populations in Spain. Our program aims to explore the sounds of European art music as it reached the shores of Central America, with a particular focus on the Spanish manuscripts Cancionero de Palacio and the Codex Segovia which feature composers Encina, Enriquez, Triana, Agricola, Brumel, Obrecht, and the great Josquin. A time of new musical development, coming out of the late Middle Ages and transitioning to the Renaissance, the end of the 15th century is characterized by a strong polyphonic tradition and the use both of voices and of instruments.
