Celebrate this folk mass from our twin city in Nicaragua - sing, play, or just listen.
This Mass has been sung annually in Oxford for many years. Since 1986 Oxford has been twinned with León, a university city in Nicaragua.
The Mass was composed by Carlos Mejía Godoy, in collaboration with musicians, priests, workers, fishermen and subsistence farmers. Its lively tunes, passionate lyrics and complex rhythms reflect the richness of the Nicaraguan folk tradition.
Conductor: Duncan Saunderson
Musicians and singers wanted!
These are wonderful songs to perform and we would welcome all players and singers. It will be helpful if you speak Spanish, or are used to singing in other languages.
