Information about the recording
|CD:||EMI CDS 7 54341 2 (2 CD’s) Spanish and Mexican Renaissance Vocal Music|
The first disc is a representation of what someone, living in the Spanish court in the period 1475 – 1520 might have heard there. The second disc explores how that musical tradition was exported to Mexico and how it developed there. The music varies from “almost plain chant” to complicated polyphony, in secular as well as sacred works. Recorded 1991. I bought this CD in a record shop in the Netherlands in 1998.
