Los Coflades de la estleya, Christ Church United Methodist, December 16, 2018
Los Coflades de la estleya was written in the late 17th century Baroque style with organ and guitar providing the basso continuo. Renaissance and Baroque paintings depict the Magi as coming from Europe, Asia and Africa. The text is a Spanish dialect, and the syncopated rhythmic pattern sung by the soloists comes from the “guineo,” a West African dance borrowed by Europeans.
