Cantos y Suspiros


Xacarilla explores the sumptuous sound world of 17th-c. Spanish songs and dances. “Cantos y Suspiros” (Songs and Sighs) tells of the pleasures and treacheries of love as depicted in nature by the birds, wind, sea, and forest. This rich poetic landscape is illuminated by the music of master composers Juan Hidalgo, Juan de Návas, José Marín, Cristóbal Galán, Santiago de Murcia, Diego Fernández de Huete, and others. Selected songs from a collection held at the Hispanic Society of America in New York City round out the program. Colombian soprano Camila Parias’ crystalline tone joins eloquent plucked strings, plaintive winds, and colorful percussion to bring to life these rarely-heard love songs.

Camila Parias, soprano, Christa Patton, Baroque harp, Jason Priset, Baroque guitar, Heloise Degrugillier, recorder, Dan Meyers, percussion
