Music from New Spain

New Ulm, MN
The choir at the Cathedral in Puebla, México was one of the best in North America in the 1600s. The Cathedral itself is a beautiful testament to Bishop Palafax y Mendoza’s vision of completion and restoration. After the bishop’s arrival in 1640, the much-delayed building project resumed.
