Format: Audio CD
This gem of a CD is the South American counterpart to Chatham Baroque's other release of Hispanic music, "Espanoleta!". "Sol y Sombra", which translates as "Sun and Shade", not only contains instrumental music from the accomplished quartet of string players, but also features the spirited, operatic voice of soprano Carol Ann Allred. Guest percussionist Danny Mallon spices things up with frequent accompaniments of castanets, tambourine and drum. Of all Chatham Baroque's excellent releases, I find this recording, along with "Espanoleta!", to be the most fun to listen to. For more early Hispanic music from the New World, try "Missa Mexicana" by Andrew Lawrence-King and the Harp Consort, and "El Milagro de Guadalupe" by Savae.

Sensuous, soulful, and spirited are not qualities that I usually associate with baroque music. This recording by Chatham Baroque is an amazingly refreshing example of baroque at it's best. This is the best CD I've bought this year!

I've been listening to my copy of "Sol y Sombra" by the Chatham Baroque all night...
It is one heck of a recording. Sun and Shade indeed! This collection of secular and sacred music from the Latin American baroque period is outstanding.
This is music that one can slip into like a trustworthy pair of old slippers. "Sol y Sombra" is worth meditating upon; but at the same time is the kind of music one can play in the background with the repeat button on for hours as you converse late into the night with Good friends.
Psalm 68:25 says: "The singers went on, the musicians after them, In the midst of the maidens beating tambourines." I imagine the same kind of scene here...shadows dancing on the walls--cast there by the firelight...the alternately reflective and then lively music driving them on.
The playing and singing are lovely. Carol Ann Allred joins Custer LaRue in my pantheon of favorite singers on the Dorian label.
This the music of a people that was moved by the presence of God in the midst of all their imperfections. I can feel it...so will you.
"Bless God in the congregations, Even the LORD, you who are of the fountain of Israel." (Psalm 68:26)
Get a copy of "Sol y Sombra" and see for yourself.

In my ignorance, I never thought of there being such a thing as Latin American baroque, but here it is and it's gorgeous.

GOOD QUALITY, PRETTY SOUND ...BUT A LITTLE CONFUSED MIX OF PERIODS AND COMPOSERS...DESPITE ALL, IT IS GOOD TO HAVE IN YOUR BAROQUE COLLECTION
