Seraphic Fire celebrates 500 years of Spain in Florida with music that accompanied Ferdinand & Isabella's explorers across the ocean. Days before Easter Day, 1513, Ponce de Leon and his crew first set eyes upon the coast of Florida. Although he never found the fabled Fountain of Youth, Ponce de Leon established the New World's first continental colony at St. Augustine. Seraphic Fire sings the rapturous Misa El Ojo of Aragonese composer Francisco Peñalosa and the genius text settings of Salamanca's Juan del Encina in a concert illustrating the compositional magic woven by the Spanish masters.
