Description: First recordings of the concerti by Facco, an Italian who spent his career at the Spanish court; these concertos were only discovered in Mexico City in 1961. The orchestra uses a mariachi vihuela and a guitarrón as continuo instruments - you may want this just for the unusual results! Manuel Zogbi (violin), Daniel Armas (psaltery), The Mexican Baroque Orchestra; Miguel Lawrence (recorder).
