    Default Estaban Salas - 18th Century Cuban Baroque

    Artist: Esteban Salas
    Title: Un Barroco Cubano del Siglo XVIII
    Year of Release: 1996
    Record Label: Jade/Milan
    Genre: Classical/Baroque
    An image of the title. (see below on how to include an image into your post)
    Detailed review of recording.

    This is an absolutely gorgeous recording of the Coro Exaudi de Cuba (Exuadi Choir of Cuba). It very nicely captures the cathedral's space and atmos. The amazingly long decay during Toquen presto a fuego (track 8) is worth the price of admission all on it's own. Stunning!

    Also, I'm rather surprised that this thread has gone dormant for so long. There must be tons of great classical discs that people love and want to share. Wassupwiththat?

    Thanks for the recommendation. I just ordered the CD from Amazon.

    I did a few classical reviews, and got no response, so I concluded that people were not interested, and did not do any more.

    I assume you are interested in Gregorian Chant too. If so I have one disk to recommend.

    Hi Bernard,

    I get the feeling that many in this forum are more jazz oriented, not that there's anything wrong with that

    Yes, I would love to hear your recommendation on GC music. I have several discs of that genre. To that end, I just picked up an outstanding vocal group disc, more geared toward the holiday season. I'll post it for all to see.

    Cheers

    Hi Bernard,

    Has your copy of Esteban Salas come in yet? Of so, what do you think??

    Hey Todd,

    I received the Salas today. Very enjoyable. Sounds so....civilized and courtly. I can see myself enjoying it with a nice piece of cheese and a nice red (wine, laddie, not a redhead!).

    Thanks again for the rec. BTW I also received the Dubeau Fairy Tales, another Bec-Helloiun, and the I Ching Symphony (will review it later). 2 used and two gifts; not a bad haul!
