Notes & Reviews:

Navidad is a celebration of the lively and compelling repertoire of villancicos and dances from 16th and 17th-century Latin America and Spain. The villancico is a distinctively Spanish song form which has enjoyed a long history of popularity across Spain and Latin America almost continuously from the late 15th century to the present.

Some of the songs written in Latin America were performed in the Iberian peninsula within a few years of their premieres in Mexico, showing how quickly music could travel both directions across the Atlantic. Indeed, as this recording demonstrates, in the 17th century the musical world in Latin America could boast a depth of feeling and vitality of execution to rival anything from Europe.

Since its founding in 1972, The Toronto Consort has become internationally recognized for its excellence in the performance of Medieval, Renaissance and early Baroque music. The Consort's goal is to explore new repertoire and new ways to bring early music to the modern audience. The Consort tours across Canada, the United States and Europe.

The Globe and Mail
Almost anything performed by the Toronto Consort cheers me right up. This band - so expert, so rhythmically alive, so humorous, at times so touching - has such an infectious time doing what it does so well, I just sit and smile.
