The Jesuits were expelled from the Spanish colonies in South America in 1767, leaving behind a remarkable musical legacy that was buried for over two hundred years. But the music did not disappear completely. ­Thanks to the Chiquitos people of Bolivia, the music was played and preserved throughout the 18‑th and 19‑th centuries. In 1985, Swiss architect Hans Roth discovered 9,000 of these musical manuscripts, and in 1990 UNESCO declared the churches of the Chiquitos a “patrimony of humanity”. Now, Dr. Gustavo Leone of Loyola University Chicago’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts has painstakingly retrieved and restored four of these incredible manuscripts, preserving a rare and invaluable treasure of the Jesuit and Catholic heritage such as “Misa Zípoli” by Doménico.
