Nebra: Visperas de Confesores / Recasens, et al

Notes & Reviews:

Jose de Nebra (1702-1768) is, without a doubt, the most important figure of Spanish music of the mid-eighteenth century. He worked at the Royal Chapel, where he was named first organist, and then vicemaestro in 1751. As a consequence of the fire at the Alcazar of Madrid in 1734 that all but destroyed the music archives of the Royal Chapel, Nebra was able to focus on sacred music, which in keeping with the period were written primarily for a double choir and instrumental accompaniment. La Grande Chapelle and the Schola Antiqua have reconstructed from multiple sources one of Nebra's possible offices, that of the Vespers for the Common of Confessors, recreating sacred music of unusual stature, atmosphere, and rich polyphony.
