This masterly recording offers us the world premiere of several cantatas and villancicos by Juan Francés de Irribaren, and his pupil and successor as choirmaster at Malaga Cathedral, Jayme Torrens, which between them cover the entire century, They both span the entire century, moving from the very Vivaldian (and Neapolitan) gallant style of the former to the almost Viennese classicism of the latter, in arias that, although written on sacred texts, have absolutely nothing to envy the most virtuoso and avant-garde creations of their respective periods.
