La Grande Chapelle

He was once Francisco Guerrero's assistant; in 1604 Alonso Lobo himself became Kapellmeister at the Cathedral of Seville. But their bond was one for life, as suggested by Lobo's many masses based on Guerrero's work. Albert Recasens links Guerrero's six-part motet Beata Dei genetrix to Lobo's eponymous mass: a generous composition that demonstrates why this composer was considered by his contemporaries to be one of Spain's very greatest composers.

About the performers

La Grande Chapelle is a vocal and instrumental early music ensemble with a European outlook. Its main objective is to apply new readings to the great vocal works of the 16th to 18th centuries, with special emphasis on the polychoral productions of the Baroque period. Upon its foundation in 2005, fired by a desire to spread Spain's musical heritage, La Grande Chapelle also set up its own independent record label, Lauda. In 2010 La Grande Chapelle received the inaugural FestClásica (the Spanish Classical Music Association Awards) Prize for its contribution to the performance and recovery of previously unrecorded Spanish music.
