HASH(0x9bcab1ec) out of 5 stars Reenactment of the Music of the California Missions 23 Jan. 2009
By interested_observer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Chanticleer's "Mission Road" CD/DVD delivers excellent performances of eleven pieces originating in the New World and performed in the California Missions.

Five pieces are attributed to Juan Bautista Sancho, who worked out of Mission San Antonio de Padua (Central California), two pieces were by Manuel de Sumaya, who was at the Mexico City Cathedral, and four are from manuscripts once at the Mission Santa Clara de Asis (Santa Clara, CA) and now at The Bancroft Library. While the vocal lines were intact, some of the light instrumental accompanyment was composed afresh in correct period style.

The research on the music and the author of the detailed and informative essay in the CD/DVD's liner notes is by Dr. Craig H. Russell of California Polytechnic State University.

The DVD shows Chanticleer touring and performing at several missions, while interspersing interviews with Dr. Russell, Chanticleer members, and a Franciscan monk.

The only criticism is that there is no text of the words sung, which are mostly in Spanish, with some Latin.

Researching and reenacting the music of the past brings it back to life and increases our understanding of how it is that we are as we are. Chanticleer's performances and the recording are both first rate.

I had the great opportunity to listen and watch this wonderul masterpiece live at the Mission San Luis Obispo last spring! It is an absolutely amazing compilation, I couldn't believe my eyes and ears. It was made even more special as my wife and I sat at the mission we were married 10 years before listening one of our most favorite musical groups.

I've long been a fan of Chanticleer. I own many of their recordings, and they're all outstanding, as well. Mission Road continues this tradition of excellence....of perfection.

I'm looking forward to seeing them in Februeary at Penn State!

It is pretty simple- buy this. It is hard to go wrong with anything this amazing group produces- especially the early music. Chanticleer- please do another album of this music!!
