Overview

Sometimes the brightest jewels are not found in remote, exotic lands but instead are found close by, right under our noses in our own backyard. Such is the case with the enchanting melodies and musical settings of the California missions and Mexican cathedrals.

Music on this CD/DVD package delves into these musical frontiers and examines what local Californians would have heard around 200 years ago, both inside and outside the mission walls. Approximately one third of the repertoire deals with processional pieces: parades and pageantry were parts of major feast days. Another third is devoted to the Misa en sol, which was most probably composed by Friar Juan Bautista Sancho. The remaining third explores the fabulous music of "America's Handel," the Mexican-born Manuel de Sumaya.

Enjoy the beauty of California's beloved missions and share the captivating experience of seeing and hearing this music performed in the setting for which it was written. The 34-minute bonus DVD Mission Road: Our Journey Back takes you behind the scenes of these mission-era inspired performances with concert footage, one-on-one interviews, and a breathtaking collection of mission landscapes.
