Alfonso X, an ailing 13th century king of Castile, prayed to the Virgin Mary for divine intercession. Upon his recovery, he commissioned cantigas praising the Virgin and her miraculous works. The Newberry Consort expands to 11 performers to tell this compelling story, incorporating projected images of the lavish illustrations from the original manuscripts. This concert is preceded by our annual 3:00 silent auction and chocolate reception.
