CAPILLA ANTIGUA DE CHINCHILLA
Founded in 2002 for the study and revival of early music, the Capilla Antigua de Chinchilla is directed by its founder, the tenor José Ferrero. The ensemble has participated in festivals and concerts throughout Spain, including the Hellín Early Music Festival, the 2005 Liétor Organ Festival and Festivals of the Early Music of Chinchilla in 2006 and 2007, and at the Musical October of Carthage in Tunisia in 2008. Recordings include music from the Cancionero of Alfonso X and the Sung Passion of Chinchilla, works by Ginés de Boluda, who served at the cathedrals of Cuenca and Toledo in the sixteenth century, with a third recording devoted to works by Rogier, Victoria, Morales and Guerrero, among others, performed with the historic organ of Liétor. In 2007 another recording was devoted to the medieval music of pilgrims and sephardim. Their most recent recording of sephardic music, Endechar: Lament for Spain, was released on Naxos 8.572443 in 2010: the music has been performed at major festivals throughout the world.
