From Serra to Sancho

Oxford University Press

“Modern-day” California began with the founding of the San Diego Mission by Junípero Serra in 1769. The accounts of sacred services and the founding of this and other mission settlements—as described by Serra and his friend and biographer Francisco Palóu—provide the source material for this chapter's discussion of pageantry and sacred song in California. Special attention is devoted to the founding of Monterey in all its magnificent splendor and theatricality, as well as the relevant musical pieces such as the Veni Creator Spiritus, the Salve Regina, the Te Deum, the Alabado (a song of thanksgiving that was an obligatory part of the daily routine at the mission communities), and the Alba (a dawn song).

Keywords:   San Diego Mission, Junípero Serra, sacred services, Francisco Palóu, Monterey, Veni Creator Spiritus, Salve Regina, Te Deum, Alabado, Alba
