When searching for mexican composers and mexican music, basically one will find music dated from the second half of the XIX century and from the XX century, but what about earlier music? Music that occupied the viceroyalty period was in many factors forgotten and manuscripts were lied hidden in cathedrals, libraries or personal collections. Few musicologist have found the touch of this kind of music, a music different from the european baroque, a music with special mexican taste. One just must listenen to Sumaya or Jerusalem y Stella or Juan Gutierrez de Padilla, etc.
This disc presents music of composers whose music was performed in the New Spain, and many of they were spaniards.
Enjoy the "cantadas" and human tones, a music style that was in vogue in the first hal of XVII century in Spain and in the New World.
