Despite their limited agency, colonial Mexico City nuns blossomed in creativity. They integrated slaves of African descent as the main characters of their Christmas carols and inspired unusual iconographies that claimed feminine divine musical essence. Tune in to Dr. Carolina Sacristán and Dr. Sarah Finley as they not only discuss how poets Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and others found their voices in the complex soundscapes of their time, but also share revitalized versions of centuries-old religious music.
