Silvestre Revueltas' Sensemayá was written in 1937 for chamber ensemble; one year later, the composer transcribed it for full orchestra. Revueltas' masterful orchestration, and ability to evoke the ancient Maya civilization with decidedly modern music are unique. It is a unique orchestral spectacle, something only Revueltas could have written, and in its way it is one of the most brutal works of its time.
