In honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe will present a concert of Sacred Music — Song of the Angels. Music of many periods in history will be represented, played by strings, trumpet, organ, marimba, and sung by choir and soloists. Presented in the style of a “prism concert,” each piece will be performed in immediate succession, emanating from different parts of the Shrine church, with its magnificent acoustics. From Gregorian chant (1st millennium) to Bach (18th century) to LaRocca (21st century), music in honor of, or addressed to Our Lady will culminate in a new Latin hymn to Our Lady of Guadalupe, specially commissioned for this concert, and set to a 13th-century melody from Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. Admission is free and open to all.
