Notes & Reviews:

This is the first internationally released CD dedicated to Jaime Leon (b. 1921), now the Grand Old Man of Colombian music and a vital figure in its development. His Misa breve, here receiving its first recording, has an innocent sincerity reminiscent of Poulenc's religious music. The word-setting in his songs is subtle and imaginative, but with melodic immediacy and uncomplicated appeal. This release is a truly international one, with American and Spanish soloists, an American pianist and Columbian conductor, soloists, orchestra and choirs on a London-based, Scotsman run label!
