We are rehearsing for a mass.
These are two bits of the work of Francisco López Capillas .A Mexican composer of the 17th century.
The first is part of ‘Magnificat’, my teacher told us that Catholics consider it the most powerful prayer.
Edit: I’m aware this video isn’t working. It migrated from blogger and stopped working.
You can hear our teacher (and director) singing the part of the bass at the beginning, then he goes over the alto part with us. The words say:
“Deposuit potentes de sede, et exaltavit humiles”*
*(He has brought down the powerful from their thrones and lifted up the lowly)
The Second thing we sing is actually a complete piece, “Alleluia” I’m just learning it.
Each voice has a beautiful melody and I find amazing how this incredible explosion of joy and light takes place when they are assembled together
The pictures are of the choir, the convent and some signs of the choir’s recitals.
