Notes & Reviews:

Chicago Arts Orchestra's debut release portrays New Spain as a Mecca of baroque and gallant music through a selection of works by two of colonial Mexico's most prolific and influential composers: Jerusalem, a master of the gallant style and Billoni, who helped shape late baroque repertoire.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
I really wanted to like this program, given its content. The playing and singing are average. I would like to be more excited about the performances. Now to what is good about this. The music itself is unusual, by two Italians who composed in the New World: Ignacio Jerusalem and Santiago Billoni. Collectors who enjoy the great New World baroque findings from recent years will probably recognize Ignacio's name. The first piece on the program is his Symphony in G.
