Just listening to soprano Maria Cristina Kiehr in her early collaborations with Gabriel Garrido is a sheer pleasure! This recording has been available first on Symphonia, then on Pan Classics, but now it arrives on Glossa Cabinet for a new life. Garrido is the big ''discoverer'' of music created in Latin America after the arrival of the ''conquistadores'' - this music bears strong traditional flavors, while at the same time reflecting the strong influences from Spain (especially) and Portugal. A big line-up of fine singers and instrumentalists supports the reconstruction of an essential repertory.

Today Heinrich Schütz (1585–1672) is considered the most important and influential German composer of the early baroque era. In his 55 years of service as chapel master to the court of Saxony in Dresden, he taught not only the choirboys in his chapel but music students sent to him from other German courts. His pupils were highly sought after as (court) chapel masters, orchestra leaders or church music directors throughout northern Europe.
