 “Songs of Love and War” features songs from the middle ages to the present that address slavery, conquest, and resistance. The first half of the program includes Spanish and Sephardic (Iberian-origin Jewish) songs from the wars in Spain between the Spanish and Moors as well as Sephardic songs from the first half of the 20th century. The second half focuses on the Spanish conquest of the New World and the capture of Atahualpa, the last Inca, and on the struggles against Latin American dictatorships during the latter half of the 20th century. Although many of the texts are somber, much of the music is lively, in particular the set of pieces from the 18th century Trujillo de Peru manuscript. Zorzal features a vocal quintet, recorders, guitar, violoncello, and Latin American, Middle Eastern, and African percussion.
