JUAN HIDALGO (1614-1685): 5 villancicos and 15 tonos.
Catalogue Number: 11R013
Description: Although he is remembered primarily for his creation of the zarzuela genre with Calderón de la Barca, Hidalgo also wrote dozens of both sacred and secular tonos and the sacred pieces known as villancicos, founded in secular music of the people. All but six of these works are First Recordings and help fill an important gap in our knowledge of the Spanish baroque. Comes with a 110-page booklet of scholarly quality in four languages. Spanish-English texts. La Grande Chapelle; Albert Recasens.
