Overview

The great Spanish soprano Victoria de los Angeles revived the songs of the Spanish Sephardic Jews back in the 1950s. Today, this rich repertory is tapped by many early music ensembles, including La Rondinella, based in Washington, D.C. The string players have a sense of meditative calm appropriate to this music, while the singers and some folkloric instruments add raucous Moorish influences. The program is delightfully varied, well balanced between upbeat and more deliberate numbers.
