Spanish Music In The Age of Exploration
This original CBS Masterworks album includes many of The Waverly Consort's most
acclaimed performances, both vocal and instrumental. In addition to compositions
by Victoria, Gombert, Ortiz, and Flecha, there are also several anonymous Sephardic
songs that evoke the vibrant and exotic mix of Jewish, Muslim, and Spanish culture
that flourished on the Iberian peninsula before the fateful year of 1492.
