Alejandra Lopera Quintanilla of Charlotte Sister City, Arequipa, Peru and John Pruett of Winston- Salem, NC join Carolina Pro Musica to present music of 17th and 18th century Europe and Peru. Works for solo recorder, trios, and short opera arias are featured with early music of Peru. The first polyphonic musical work ever published in the New World (Hanacpachap, 1631) is included. The language is a combination of Quechua and Spanish. Instruments include traditional early music instruments of the 18th century (recorders, violin, traverso, harpsichord, viola da gamba and voice, plus percussion, harp, mandolin, pennywhistle) - A unique collection of music stretching beyond the usual European bounds in sound and instrumentation. !

Recorded at St. Martin's Episcopal Church, Charlotte, NC, Feb. 11, 2001
