"A batallar estrellas", music of the Spanish cathedrals in the 17th century

Al Ayre Espanol, Eduardo Lopez-Banzo
1 CD

Drawing from the extensive Spanish religious repertoire of the seventeenth century, “A batallar estrellas” unites a group of works scored for double chorus, with a spectacularly charged sonority typical of the Iberian baroque. The manuscripts of these pieces (many of the performances are being given here for the first time) have been found in the archives of a number of Spanish cathedrals, as well as from those of Mexico City Cathedral.

This title was released for the first time in 2004.
