Al Alva Venid: Secular Music From The Spanish Rena
Format: COMPACT DISC
Almajano, Marta; Ensemble La Romanesca
Here is another crucial Glossa recording of the mid 90's brought back to life. Ensemble La Romanesca's Al Alva Venid covers some essential Spanish Renaissance repertory with an all-stars line-up, in a set of interpretations which have set deep marks and are absolute references: here is Marta Almajano in her best singing moment, here is Paolo Pandolfo confirming his superior artistry, here are Juan Carlos de Mulder and Pedro Estevan in ''de luxe'' supporting roles, and of course here is Jose miguel Moreno, the man who has probably been the finest translator of Renaissance secular Spanish music onto record of the last three decades.
