The Villefranche de Rouergue’s ‘Pénitents Noirs’ (Black Penitents) treasure is also a ‘musical treasure’. It includes a collection of handwritten scores along with musical instruments – among which a remarkable serpent - which testify to the pomp of the great ceremonies and processions throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Long silenced but now restored thanks to the work of Jean-Christophe Maillard, the late Toulouse musicologist, and of the conductor Rolandas Muleika, the chosen motets have been given a new life.

In the 15th century, when the catholic Kings banished the Jews from Spain, “ladino” meant… crafty ! Because only the foxiest (« like the devil … ») spoke that language ! It lived on until nowadays in the Jewish communities, which were built up after that disaster, in Istanbul, Thessaloniki and in Tangier or Tetouan, Morocco. Ladino or Judaeo-Spanish, crossed the Mediterranean sea and took away with it marvelous melodies that sing the bright love, the exile or tell the story of Jewish people.

The main composers presented here are Johann Hermann Schein and Melchior Franck, the essential representatives of early German baroque. Schein and Franck were almost exact contemporaries of each other, and developed their respective careers not fifty leagues apart – Coburg for Franck, Leipzig for Schein, who was, remember, a predecessor of Bach's in the role of Cantor of Saint Thomas – but it seems they never met.

What an exquisite release this is. By turns meditative, inquiring, playful and restless. But always provocative. And with an element of sensuous fantasy. For her debut recording, Helsinki-based Spanish cellist Guadalupe López Iñiguez takes a holistic approach to the complete works for cello of baroque composers Domenico Gabrielli and Alessandro Scarlatti – one embracing psychology, musicology and sociology. She is accompanied by like-minded musicians: a continuo ensemble comprising Markku Luolajan-Mikkola (baroque cello), Olli Hyyrynen (baroque guitar and archlute) and Lauri Honkavirta (harpsichord).
