flowers from field & garden:
a garden of choral song
from Spain & Latin America
This release, Coro Hispano's third on CD, presents a varied and exciting sampling of music for voices and instruments from the cathedrals of Puebla, Lima and Sevilla, the ranchos of early California, the plazas of Veracruz, the rain-forest missions of Paraguay, all the way to the mountain villages of Nigeria. Brilliant vocal solos and on-target instrumental work by some of the West Coast's leading names in early music combine with foot-stomping Veracruz zapateados and robust, ranchera-style singing in this sampler from a half-dozen different concert programs.
If Mexican Baroque has caught your ear, this wide-ranging anthology of choral music from Mexico, Central and South America is a must; it's got Latin American Renaissance, Baroque, Classic, Romantic and folk-originate works in a rich array of texture, styles and sonorities, from chorus-orchestra down to voice-and-guitar.
