While shep­herds search and sing: Los Pa­s­tores

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The New Mex­ico Bach So­ci­ety Chorale and Play­ers, con­ducted by Franz Vote, per­forms mu­si­cal ex­cerpts from the His­panic folk play Los Pa­s­tores. The pi­o­neer­ing folk-mu­sic col­lec­tor John Don­ald Robb orig­i­nally ar­ranged this work (in a set­ting for cho­rus and pi­ano) out of pieces he had gath­ered on his treks around the South­west, but this per­for­mance em­ploys a newly cre­ated expansion for soloists, cho­rus, and cham­ber orches­tra. The pro­gram also in­cludes other Span­ish and His­panic motets and folk pieces rel­e­vant to the sea­son, as well as com­men­tary by Jack Lo­ef­fler and retired Univer­sity of New Mex­ico pro­fes­sor En­rique La­madrid. The con­cert takes place at 6 p.m. on Sun­day, Nov. 27, at Cristo Rey Catholic Church, 1120 Canyon Road. Tick­ets ($34-$46) can be ar­ranged by call­ing 877-466-3404 or through www.nm­per­formin­gartsso­ci­ety.org. — James M. Keller
