Bailes, Tonadas & Cachuas: Songs and Dances from Trujillo, Peru
How unusual to find any 18th-century popular music in manuscript! But the bishop Martínez Compañon compiled a codex covering every aspect of life in Peru—including twenty popular songs and dances so varied that they show the dynamic mix of cultures during the colonial era. The Latin American musicians of Música Temprana are ideal interpreters for this rare repertory.
Part of the New York Early Music Celebration 2015, a service project of the Early Music Foundation.
