Notes and Editorial Reviews





Chanticleer Celebrates 30 Remarkable Years with a Musical and Visual Journey that Evokes the Vibrant Era of Struggle, Discovery and Faith in the California Missions.

This CD/DVD package delves into these musical frontiers and examines what local Californians would have heard 200
Read more years ago, both inside and outside the mission walls. It contains premieres of newly discovered works retrieved from the archives of the Mexico City Cathedral, featuring music from well-respected composers of the time including John Friar Juan Bautista Sancho (compositions written during his 26 years at Mission Antonio de Padua) and Mexican-born Manuel de Sumaya often referred to as “America’s Handel”. Sumaya was responsible for introducing many of the most up-to-date trends of the High Baroque to the New World.

The 34-minute DVD “Mission Road-Our Journey Back” goes behind the scenes of Chanticleer’s Mission Tour with concert footage, one-on-one interviews and a breathtaking collection of mission landscapes.
