Notes and Editorial Reviews

As seen on CBS SUNDAY MORNING, Florilegium explores the music of Catholic missions in Bolivia from the 18th century.

"For their second volume exploring the music of Catholic missions in Bolivia, Florilegium are joined by a quartet of expert singers and the specially assembled Arakaendar Bolivia Choir...the centrepiece is a performance of a mass by the Ferrara composer Giovanni Battista Bassani (1657-1716), a printed copy of which was taken to the missionary post at Moxos in about 1730. Each movement of the mass is excellently performed, with the choral contributions notable for their joyful honesty and concentration.

Florilegium are typically excellent in several instrumental solos, including an
Read more outstanding sonata by Locatelli...The few short Nativity pieces by Juan de Araujo...rank among the most intriguing music here; but this disc is worth buying for the brief anonymous pieces Stella coeli extirpávit and Tota pulchra es María, in which the Bolivian Soloists produce a pure blend and finely shaped expression...The disc is packed with obscure treasures that amply reward the listener and, as one expects, Channel's recorded sound is nothing short of marvellous."

-- David Vickers, Gramophone

Also Available - Bolivian Baroque / Florilegium
"European-style 18th-century vocal and instrumental music from the Jesuit 'Reducciones,' or 'settlements' in Bolivia of remarkable quality and effervescence, with no lack of technical demands on the performers." - David Vernier, ClassicsToday
