about

Sacred Hymns, serenades, narrative ballads, and lyric folk songs give a glimpse of the diverse and captivating cultural landscape of Hispanic New Mexico. These centuries old-traditions have helped sustain the Hispanic community's ethnic identity, but until recently they have received little attention outside the Southwest. Spanish lyrics have English translations. 26 tracks. 73 minutes. "The beauty of the collection lies not only in the romantic poetry and dramatic tension that distinguish many of the ballads, but also in the ritual dances, choral arrangements, and ceremonial serenades that colorfully and often robustly punctuate the anthology." —Washington Post
