Capilla de Indias In the Jesuits’ Sunshine State

Paradise Lost is situated in the Amazon rainforest. In the regions of Guaraníes, Moxeños and Chiquitanos, the Jesuit missionaries who came to America at the end of the 16th century came upon a garden of earthly delights full of green plants, fresh springs, colorful flowers and multicolored birds that sang with the voice of God – Heaven on Earth where souls are resting and rising, lightly like the birds and the angels. To the Inkas, too, this was a place of prosperity and wellbeing, a place where they withdrew to pursue their rituals in their fight against the conquistadores. During their missions in Paraguay and Bolivia, the Jesuits also succeeded in establishing a paradisiac place on Earth of a certain material and spiritual prosperity. In the Jesuits’ sunshine state the arts played an important role in the process of evangelization, in a way that imported European music was influenced by the natives.
In this performance, Capilla de Indias from Chile is going to gather some of these musical works that were, back in the days, collected by the missionary priest José Francisco de Arce and bring the fascinating blend of sacral original melodies and indigenous elements to life. After the expulsion of the Jesuits from the South-American paradise by the Spanish crown and the downfall of the missionaries in the 18th century, a process of reconstruction approved of by the indigenous people began. In the performance of the chants of that time – passed on thanks to the collecting activities of a Spanish governor – Capilla de Indias respects the original character of the melodies and lyrics. At the end of colonial times, the Inkas tried to establish a new realm. Their utopias and myths manifest themselves in the passionate tunes of mourning and hope that are contained in the codex of the Peruan Bishop Martínez of Compañón.

After the concert, the audience is invited to wine and bread by Freunde der Kunstmeile Krems.
