On Tuesday December 12 at 7:00 p.m., the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny will be sponsoring a Solemn High Mass for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, 414 East 14th Street, New York.
This mass is made possible in part by the generosity of the late Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro, and will be offered for the repose of his soul.
The music will be extraordinary: an orchestral mass from “Matins for the Virgin of Guadalupe” by Ignacio de Jerusalem, an 18th century composer from Lecce, Italy and Cadiz. He was active since the 1740’s in Mexico City, where he was chapel master at the cathedral. This will be a rare opportunity to hear this unique music from Spanish Mexico.
