Spanish Art Song was embraced around the world, including by England, France, Italy, and Latin America. This program includes selections from the 16th through the early 19th centuries and explores the traditions these songs picked up as they made their winding journey through Spain, across the globe, and back to their homeland.

Christina Kay, soprano, and Jimmy Mora Silva, historical guitars and lutes, are dedicated to spirited performances of early music. Their partnership began at the Madison Early Music Festival in 2015, and they have since performed together in several Baroque opera productions and early music concerts.
