A reminder of the treasures already in my collection:



For Spanish Baroque aficionados, I can only endorse Johan van Veen's strong recommendation:

Splendid Spanish High Baroque in splendid performances.  A beautiful blend of earlier traditions in Spanish music and "modern" Italian influences. Particularly the instrumental parts for woodwinds are beautiful and a De Hita trademark.

Both discs look interesting, I will have to see what Spotify has available - this is a composer completely new to me.

I recall that some recordings by Recasens are available on Spotify.

I'm kind of addicted to recordings by Catalan conductors Ángel and Albert Recasens: beautiful Spanish/Catalan Baroque music unknown to the rest of the world in superb, expertly done period performances. On top of that: great sound & lavish presentation by their family owned label Lauda . I have collected quite a few of their recordings with La Grande Chapelle already. Sadly, Ángel Recasens passed away in 2007. But his son Albert is a worthy successor.

Thanks for the info. After checking my collection I found a couple of discs from Albert and La Grande Chapelle - works by Duron and Vals.

I haven't listened to it for a while so I would have to refresh my memory - I am sure I enjoyed it. I have listened to the Vals more often.

I think this is the first time a particular singer has caught my attention. I guess I’m listening to more vocal music these days (though I dislike opera). Maria Cristina Kiehr! She’s great. I don’t know what this is or what the titles mean but the second track: La Carretera - Cumbees. It’s gorgeous.

Agreed, I know her through this (not a recommendation for the cd, but her voice is nice.)

I like that. I see she’s fairly prolific; she’s on some Monteverdi in addition to various recordings of Spanish and “new world” baroque. I also notice she’s on a Bach motets recording. That I want to hear.
I’m interested in any recommendations of other voices with a similar quality. Up until now, soprano has been my least favorite vocal range.
