O Rex Gloriae. Francesc Valls i la música de l'Arxiduc Carles
CLASSICAL / CONTEMPORARY
LA MÀ DE GUIDO (LMG2134 02)
The program of this CD has been devoted to the motets composed by Maestro Valls during the first third of the 18th century. This genre was very important in Catholic liturgy and allowed for the use of several compositional techniques, ranging from classical polyphonic structure to the latest eccentricities in fashion in Europe. It has been further complemented with some instrumental works by Italian composers that were somehow linked to the court of Charles III in Barcelona. Almost all the works included on this CD have never been recorded.
