It's no longer a secret among lovers and classicists of historic music performances that the repertoire of 17th century Latin-American music holds real treasures. That is why the Columbian ensemble MÚSÍCA FÍCTA, specialised in instrumental music and vocal recitation, sought out works of that time and decided to release them on a beautiful ARTS Hybrid SACD.

The music is fascinating because apparently incompatible elements such as dances, women, God and the Virgin Mary were brought together. Borders between the culture of the common people and the noble, between the clerical and secular world were overstepped. Pictures of love and devotion as well as feasts and worship come to mind whilst listening to the Hispanic-American Baroque music.

It is a great pleasure for us to present you with these enjoyable works in our ARTS authentic blue line as Hybrid SACD in multichannel surround sound.

Supersonic from pizzicato!!! (12/2006) (30.11.2006)

“A wonderful production that bring us in the world of the devotional feasts of the high Peru in the 17th century… Musica Ficta, an ensemble that is extremely coherent and specialised in a repertoire that loses nothing in comparison with the European one of the same age. A breathtaking recording with excellent spatial rendition of the performers”
