Again this year the Sacred Music Colloquium included a Mass celebrated in Spanish: this time a votive Mass of Our Lady of Guadalupe, with wonderful music of the Spanish Renaissance, on Thursday, July 4.
The Mass setting was La misa Caça by Cristobal de Morales, and the Mass included motets by Guerrero and de la Torre. The propers were sung in new plainchant adaptations by Janet Gorbitz and Jennifer Donelson. Music for the Mass can be viewed in the colloquium repertoire book at pages 103-134, except for a motet by Cornelius Verdonck of the Spanish Netherlands, which was a late substitution.
