With the German label CPO, Ensemble Villancico will soon release its sixth recording, with a truly unique repertoire, 17th century music from Ecuador.

The new recording is an outcome of Peter Pontvik`s and the ensemble`s research travels to Latin America. It is based on manuscripts found in churches and monestaries. The music, which contains both sacral and folkloristic characteristics, varies from 8-chord choir and instrumental music to duets, solos and - a piece for marimba!

The CD will be released in May this year. If you want to order your copy in advance, please send an email to peter@villancico.se and you`ll become an early listener to rediscovered Ecuadorian baroque!
