México Barroco Vol II

And here friends the second volume and final of the series "México Barroco", tat it is in it most, an ovation to Jerusalem y Stella, one of the most great musicians in all history that inhabited Viceroyal Mexico, and at the same time, one of the most unjustly beaten by the cruelty of time.

Note: Pay special attention to my favorite aria of this disk, track 6 "Si aleve fortuna", a trace of the most beautiful music of Baroque Mexico that hopefully came to our days.

Enjoy :)

Mexico Barroco vol I

My favorite "Te Deum's"?  Purcell's in first place and then Delgado's. Both fascinating, charming and opulent, but away from each other by half a world (both literally and metaphorically) and by a century. Perhaps Delgado's "Te Deum" is a little more interesting due to its source of exoticism which renders it  in the category "must-listen".

Jerusalem works are also worth to listened, considering his great fame among his contemporaries who referred to him as " The musical miracle".

Enjoy :)

Sonatas Novohispanas II

And here another jewel of music played in the main musical centers of Mexico.

NOTE: Just for you to be a little more high listening to this, skip tracks 5-8 since these sonatas are better played here: "Musica Barroca Mexicana I"

Enjoy :)
