In the Mode: December 29, 2013

Music heard in the new world about the baby boy in Bethlehem next time on In the Mode. By the 18th century, the Bogota Cathedral in Colombia was a major center for Western musical activity in South America, mostly due to the arrival of the Archbishop from Mexico who really encouraged the arts. It had an organ and a number of paid musicians on its staff, including both singers and instrumentalists and this religious music includes local folk elements.
