The second concert of Rush Hour Concerts at St. James Cathedral’s 11th season featured a selection of choral works from the Spanish Renaissance performed by the Chamber Singers of the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum.
The concert event was sponsored in part by the Consulate General of Spain in Chicago and the Embassy of Spain in Washington.
