Program Notes

The Virgin of Hope of Macarena (Spanish: Virgen de la Esperanza de Macarena de Sevilla) popularly known as La Esperanza or Virgin of Macarena, is a pious 17th century Roman Catholic wooden image of the Blessed Virgin Mary venerated in Seville, Spain. The Marian title falls under a category of Our Lady of Sorrows commemorating the desolate grievance and piety of the Virgin Mary during Holy Week. The image is widely considered as a national treasure by the Spanish people, primarily because of its religious grandeur during Lenten celebrations.

The image is also known for local folklore, most notably its discolored cheek allegedly caused by a wine bottle thrown by a Protestant drunken rebel at her face, which pious legends also claim has never been able to be removed. Its popularity among the masses is often highlighted in the five rose-emerald brooches attached to her dress given by the famed bullfighter José Gómez Ortega (Joselito).

- Program Note from Wikipedia


The melody is attributed to the Spanish composer Bernardino Bautista Monterde (1880-1959), about whom little is known.


NB: The word "virgin" is spelled virgen in Spanish, virgin in English.
