This program will take you on a musical journey through the fascinating intercultural history of the late 15th and early 16th century Spain. Heroic ballads celebrating the battles between Christians and Moors, salacious villancicos, wild improvisations, and traditional Sephardic romances are performed by members of the Baltimore Consort. They play a vast array of period instruments coupled with vocals by sensational Brazillan singer José Lemos. This is the 14th release by the Baltimore Consort and the first release of entirely new material in over 5 years.
