Discover Polyphonies Latino-Américaines Vol. 1, 10 a cappella polyphonies for mixed voices (from the 17th century to the present day), proposed by Néstor ZADOFF :

This first volume contains polyphonies from various South American countries and different musical genres.
The contents include some easy pieces, others of medium difficulty and some more difficult ones, but which, in a general way, can be approached by any type of choir.

Néstor ZADOFF tell us:

"This collection offers choral pieces from various South American countries; different musical genres are represented.
The first two works are of a liturgical nature and belong to the Latin American Baroque period (17th-18th centuries); the first, Hanac pachap, is the first choral work published in South America, in Cuzco (Peru) in 1631.
The other pieces in the collection have a popular origin.
In this selection we have included some easy pieces, others of medium difficulty and some more difficult ones, but which, in general, can be tackled by any choir.
Among the former are an anonymous canon (3) and a three-voice arrangement (4). The collection offers pieces of quite diverse character, sometimes intimate (1, 2, 5), sometimes rhythmic (6, 7, 8, 9).
The most difficult work in the collection is Adios Nonino (10), an arrangement with onomatopoeia on the famous instrumental tango by Astor Piazzolla, written a few days after the death of his father.
Choral singing is very widespread in Latin America; our peoples sing in groups to express their feelings of either melancholy or joy.
The pieces in this collection are classics of Latin American choral singing; they will allow those who sing them to share these emotions which are, moreover, common to women and men all over the world: choral singing is an international language, that of sensitivity".
