Zephyrus celebrates the Christmas season with a visit to 17th-century Spain, singing motets by Cristóbal de Morales, the sublime mass Tomás Luis de Victoria composed on his own motet, O Magnum Mysterium, and the folklike villanescas of Francisco Guerrero. The program also includes music from New Spain, with works in the native Nahuatl language by Gaspar Fernandes.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors age 65 and older, and $5 for students and children. They are available in advance from New Dominion Bookshop at 404 East Main St, Charlottesville; from Greenberry's in the Barracks Road Shopping Center; and at the door.

Zephyrus is a non-profit vocal ensemble based in Charlottesville, Virginia, that is dedicated to the performance of music from the medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque eras.
