The Hispanic Society of America in collaboration with Americas Society Presents Meridionalis: Music of Francisco López Capillas led by Sebastián Zubieta
Americas Society’s ensemble, Meridionalis, led by Sebastián Zubieta, presents a concert featuring sacred choral music by Mexican composer Francisco López Capillas (ca. 1615-1673). Born in Mexico City, López Capillas was one of the earliest polyphonic composers of renown born in the Americas; his works are known for their expressivity and contrapuntal splendor.
He was kappelmeister at Puebla and Mexico City, and several of his compositions have survived in archives in Mexico and Spain.

The Hispanic Society of America was founded on May 18, 1904, by Archer Milton Huntington (1870-1955). The Hispanic Society first opened its doors in 1908 at the Beaux-Arts building on Audubon Terrace that still serves as its home.
Under Huntington’s direct supervision, the Hispanic Society published more than 200 monographs by the Society’s curators and internationally noted scholars on virtually all facets of Hispanic culture. From its inception, the Hispanic Society has held important exhibitions beginning in 1909 with that of the Spanish painter Sorolla.
