Founded and directed by the Galician harpist Manuel Vilas, Ars Atlántica specialises in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Latin American music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. On its début at the III Via Stellae Santiago de Compostela music festival, the ensemble gave the première of cantatas for alto and continuo written by anonymous 17th-century Venetian composers and compiled by Marco Contarini (1632–1689) for the Palazzo Contarini in Piazzola sul Brenta, Padua.
