Programme Note
Robert Xavier Rodríguez Adoración Ambulante — A Mexican Folk Celebration (1994)
Adoración Ambulante was created for a multimedia performance combining diverse ensembles in locations throughout Tepoztlán's Cathedral Square. Church bells sound a call to worship. A fanfare of conch shells in the four corners of the courtyard is answered by trumpets in the church tower. The central portion of the work is Con Flor y Canto, a twenty-minute narrative cantata with Spanish texts from ancient Aztec and Mayan chronicles and the Bible. The cantata is framed by a choral introit and benediction in both Latin and Nauhuatl, plus dances and processionals led by Mariachis.
