Third Chapter of Musical Expedition
Welcome to our third volume of Bolivian Baroque music which was, unusually, recorded in three different venues, in two different countries almost 6250 miles apart. This time the majority of the cd was recorded in Holland during Arakaendar Bolivia Choir’s first tour of Europe with Florilegium in 2008. In addition we have included a number of solo organ pieces from the Bolivian archives which James Johnstone recorded on the restored anonymous 18th century Blockwerk organ in the Mission Church of Santa Ana de Chiquitos. This is the first European recording on this remarkable instrument, its raw sound recorded here for posterity.
