This episode of Southern Gothic is the second in the three-part series "Birth of a City: New Orleans," a story that chronicles the inception of a great American city and the legends that evolved with it.
Part II: Spirits of the Cathedral
In 1764 the French ceded control of New Orleans to the Spanish, who would control the city for the next forty years; but during that time, tragedy and violence would occur. As a result, New Orleanians turned to their spiritual leaders for guidance. Catholic priests and bishops who many believe still continue to watch over their parishoners.
Theme music for "Birth of a City: New Orleans" was written and performed by Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Adam Wright.
Additional narration by Javier Leiva of Pretend Radio.
