Artists: Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, Enrico Onofri, María Espada, Marta Infante, Jesús García Aréjul
Composer: Juan Manuel de la Puente
Juan Manuel De La Puente belongs to that long list of composers whose name and fame have been lost over time. Ordained as a young priest, he spent his entire life in the Cathedral of Jaen in Andalusia. It is there that the three hundred or so surviving works of the thousand he is said to have written are preserved, two-thirds of which are therefore lost. The recording by one of the best Spanish baroque ensembles of a few religious (Miserere) or paraliturgical (cantatas for soloists and small orchestra as well as a villancico) pieces makes it possible to discover real little musical gems.
