The Monastery of Santa Cruz at Coimbra was a major center of Portuguese music during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The Toronto Consort, guest-directed by the early music specialist and lutenist Žak Ozmo, brings you a Christmas program like you have never heard, full of ravishingly beautifulvillancicos and wild Brazilian-influenced dances, found in the Monastery’s unique archives.
