The Golden Age of Spain

Performing at Seraphic Fire-First United Methodist Church (Apr 12 - Apr 12)


Synopsis

The Golden Age of Spain: A Legacy of Spanish Music

Seraphic Fire celebrates 500 years of Spain in Florida with music that accompanied Ferdinand & Isabella’s explorers across the ocean. Days before Easter Day, 1513, Ponce de Leon and his crew first set eyes upon the coast of Florida. Although he never found the fabled Fountain of Youth, Ponce de Leon established the New World’s first continental colony at St. Augustine. Seraphic Fire sings the rapturous Misa El Ojo of Aragonese composer Francisco Peñalosa and the genius text settings of Salamanca’s Juan del Encina in a concert illustrating the compositional magic woven by the Spanish masters.

Founded in 2002 by Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, professional chamber choir Seraphic Fire has garnered critical acclaim both locally and nationally. In an exciting crossover collaboration in 2004, Seraphic Fire was invited to record with international pop-star Shakira on a track for her album Oral Fixation II, which ultimately went Platinum. Seraphic Fire has released four CD recordings to date and will release a fifth next year to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. In September of 2007, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation awarded a grant to Seraphic Fire for the formation of a new chamber orchestra.
