Recent Released Sound Recordings
of Hispanic Music
The second recording a new release
from Chanticleer and the Chanticleer Sinfonia on Teldec Das Alte
Werke is entitled Mexican Baroque. Music by Ignacio Jerusalem
and Manuel de Zumaya. Of special interest in this recording is the performance
of a Polychoral Mass in D provisionally identified as Jerusalem's, which
survives in manuscript form from Spanish California. Dr. John Koegel
rediscovered this and two other concerted Masses in the Los Angeles
Archdiocesan Archival Center in 1992. The performing edition for the
Jerusalem Mass, as well as all of the works on this recording were prepared
by Professor Craig Russell.
Ars Musica Chicago, directed
by Enrique Arias, announces a concert of music from the Newberry Choir
