Notes & Reviews:

The majority of this program was only recently rediscovered in a crypt which dates bach to 1707. Both the music and the story behing the music are presented here in greater musical and artistic fidelity than ever before. Also included is a fascinating bonus DVD documenting themaking of the recording. This set is a unique project of intense music making, a meeting of two cultures, an adventure... to both see and hear.

Gramophone Magazine
Unfamiliar music, certainly, but done with tremendous verve and imagination. Florilegium travelled to the 'Chiquitos Missions' music festival in Bolivia in 2002 and teamed up with some local musicians for a truly inspiring recording.

The Observer - Anthony Holden
Sparing no expense to bring you exotic rarities, Channel Classics carted 300kg of recording equipment from Holland to the depths of the Bolivian jungle to compile this remarkable disc in the Missionary Church of Concepción. The British ensemble Florilegium is joined by handpicked Bolivian soloists to recreate the ethereal music dating from the work of 17th- and 18th-century Jesuit missionaries among the Chiquito and Moxo peoples. Far from imposing their own traditions, the Jesuits injected new ideas into traditional local techniques, producing these distinctly South American versions of European sacred music.
