Here is a fascinating musicological document from 18th-century Mexico. At the heart of this matins service are a set of responsories by Ignacio de Jerusalem. The Italian-born Jerusalem was a virtuoso violinist who brought his considerable talents to the New World in 1742. In 1746 he was appointed maestro di cappella at the Mexico City Cathedral, a post he held until his death in 1769.

Jerusalem's music looks away from the Italian Baroque and ahead to the galante style of J.C. Bach and Haydn. The matins service includes plainchant psalms and Jerusalem's deliciously melodious responsories for solo voice, chorus and orchestra. The remainder of the service features music by Jerusalem's predecessor, Manuel de Zumaya. Zumaya's music is marked by his mastery of counterpoint and, with suitable Baroque pomp, provides a fascinating contrast to Jerusalem's more modern style.

The men of Chanticleer are superb in the reverent plainchant sections as well as the virtuoso challenges presented in Jerusalem's responsories. The excellent soloists and chorus are supported by an orchestra of period instruments, lending a wonderful piquant sound and authenticity to the service.
