Music to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of Francisco Guerrero.
This recording celebrates the music of Francisco Guerrero and presents music form his collection of music written for the office of Vespers. The second half of the disc consists of Guerrero’s Requiem mass in its original form.
The style of plainchant heard and performed in Spain was rather different from that heard in other European territories. On this recording Chapelle du Roi has followed the instructions for semi-mensural performance given by Guerrero’s colleague at Seville, Villafranca.
