5.0 out of 5 stars Just incredible... May 22, 2005
*** PLEASE NOTE!! At the time of writing this review, this recording - as is unfortunately the case with many others by Ensemble Elyma - is becoming increasingly difficult to come by in the USA; however, it is worth checking the other amazon sites, especially for France and the UK, since it is usually not quite as impossible to obtain (and sometimes cheaper too!)...***

This programme, conceived jointly by Ensemble Elyma and the musicologist Bernardo Illari (UNT College of Music), draws together some of the works by composers working in the 'Real Audiencia de Charcas' (i.e. the 'Viceroyalty of Peru') which use texts taken from the villancico collections of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz (1648-95). It focuses primarily on three composers - Juan de Araujo (1649-1712), 'maestro de capilla' at La Plata Cathedral from 1680-1712; Antonio Durán de la Mota (c.1675-1736), 'maestro de capilla' at Potosí; and lastly, the pure blood criollo Manuel (Fernandez) de Mesa (c.1725-1773), also 'maestro de capilla' at La Plata (1761-73). Overall, the selected villancicos give an excellent indication of the type of music which was heard in Bolivia (especially at La Plata) between c.1680 and c.1780. Although it is not confirmed in the liner notes (at least not in the reissue), the chosen works all seem to have been taken from the important collection of c.300 villancicos formerly owned by the musicologist Julia Elena Fortún, which was originally housed in the monastery of St Philip Neri (Sucre) and which is now kept in the Biblioteca Nacionales de Bolivia (Sucre).
