Figure 1.--These choristers are from Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City. This was an Easter 2004 performance. They wear red, white, and blue robes. I'm not sure what the significance of the colors is.
The Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City is the most famous choir in Mexico. The Cathedral is located on the Zocalo, the city-center plaza across from the capital buildings. The Cathedral was built over the foundation of the Aztec Templo Mayor. We do not have much information about the choir and its history at this time. The choirboys there still wear short pants. They often perform in short white robes. I think the image here is of the Matropolitan Cathedral Choir (figure 1). They wear red, whire, and blue robes for an Easter 2004 performance. I'm not sure what the significance of the colors is. Hopefully our Mexican readers will provide us some information about the Choir.
