The Early Garden

This will be a Christmas programme with a Spanish atmosphere. We will listen to music from Spain and Bolivia; starting in the first half of the 16th century and ending in the mid,18th century.

Typical of the repertoire is that many pieces contain a mixture of secular and spiritual elements. This is the case, for example, in the villancico, originally a purely secular form. It also made its appearance in the New World.
The first piece is an ensalada, literally: ‘salad’, an assortment of texts without much logical coherence and often with a satirical tenor.
