CD Reviews

Guadalupe praised in Spanish and Nahuatl
Enrique Torres | San Diegotitlan, Califas | 11/02/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I own two CD's by this group and bought the Guadalupe themed music in reverse order of their release dates. I loved the first one I bought and was a little disapointed when I listened to this one. The vocals lack passion and the Spanish language songs are sung with a poor accent... Hiring a singer that could annunciate the Nahuatl language would have helped. The concept and vocals themselves are beautiful. The shortcomings can be overlooked because of it's sheer beauty. The music mixes indigenous reproduced Aztec instruments with vocals. The language is derived from manuscripts dating back to the conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards. The blending of Aztec and Spanish language in praise of La Virgen de Guadalupe is marvelous and powerful. Conceptually it is wonderful and leaves one feeling tranquil and peaceful. It is meditative music that allows one to listen to one's heartbeat and feel contemplative and joyful. This is a good revival of spiritual music, it just needs more soul. Excellent background music to take a walk in nature and marvel at the gifts we are blessed with. Good peaceful music to get in touch with your inner sanctum."
Excellent recreation of a medieval musical treasure.
Enrique Torres | 05/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The unique mixture of Spanish Renaissance and Aztec folk music was lost for centuries. This group recreated the music after a fortunate discovery of the old scripts. The group provides a highly enjoyable listening experience by recapturing the mysterious ambience of the times. Their talented work in rescueing a long-forgotten musical treasure is examplary. This type of music and approach bring beauty, peace and love to our trobled times."
Exquisite rendition of early Mexican music
Enrique Torres | 02/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is simply a wonderful evocation of the period music from the earlitest Spanish period in Mexico. The singing is flawless and clearly gives a feel for the music of the period, combining the Aztec/Nahuatl with the Spanish. A deep sense of the meaning of what is being sung - even though I don't speak Nahuatl - comes through. A wonderful achievement."
