LOS MINISTRILES IN THE NEW WORLD
Navona Records NV5875

A broad and varied collection of Early Music placing its focus on the transplantation of Spanish early music into the New World and the cross-cultural melding of Spanish, Indian, and African music. The music on this recording presents both the old and the new, an amalgam and broad sampling of the songs, motets, masses, villancicos, recercadas, differencias, and dances that entertained, educated, and edified both indigenous peoples and the Iberian newcomers alike in el Nuevo Mundo.

MAGIC MIRROR
Navona Records NV5876

The second volume of composer Marty Regan’s series of Selected Works for Japanese Instruments, featuring a collection of works composed for traditional Japanese instrumentation with a Western-trained ear. Through the combination of his traditional classical education and intensive studies of Japanese music and culture, Regan explores the cross-cultural exchange between Eastern and Western traditions, blending the two into a dynamic sound that pushes the Japanese instruments to the very brink of their musical boundaries.

ESSAYS AND SKETCHES
Ravello Records RR7840

Works by American composer Newton D. Strandberg (1921-2001), featuring performances by orchestras and ensembles from around the globe. The four pieces on this recording serve as an astute collection of Standberg’s output as a composer. More than a musical release alone, ESSAYS AND SKETCHES serves as a retrospective of Strandberg’s prolific career, housing a collection of writings, visual art, scores, and more, all compiled by Strandberg’s peers, students, and admirers from Sam Houston State University.
