—Entertainment for a King—
The Duke of Lerma Hosts Philip III of Spain and his Court
The all-powerful first minister of Spain, the Duke of Lerma, staged elaborate entertainments for royalty and foreign dignitaries at his natal village in northern Castille, including dramas, bull fights, processions, and liturgies with glorious music, in the newly rebuilt church of San Pedro. This program offers a rare opportunity for well-known masters Victoria, Lobo, and Guerrero to rub shoulders with such unjustly neglected composers as Vivanco, Navarro, Mogavero, Límido, and Ruimonte.
