Música Temprana

Before he turned 60, Francisco Guerrero wanted to fulfil two dreams: to publish his Canciones Espirituales and to visit the Holy Land. That adventure would span almost five months and was described by Guerrero in The Journey to Jerusalem: a travel diary containing a wealth of information on the life and work of this Renaissance icon. Música Temprana illustrates the chronicle with polyphony by the master interwoven with improvisations on the oud.

About the performers

Founded in 2001 by Argentine-Dutch conductor Adrián Rodríguez Van der Spoel, Música Temprana specialises in Baroque repertoire from Latin America. Música Temprana's musicians are classically trained, but all have musical roots in the Latin American music tradition, so Baroque and folklore go hand in hand. The repertoire comes mainly from the archives, cathedrals and Jesuit missions of Latin America, where Rodríguez Van der Spoel regularly searches for forgotten compositions.
