Description

This work was discovered at the end of a collection of vocal pieces published in 1684 under the main title “Die Bankelsangerlieder.” or “The Song of the Bench Singers”. The term“bankelsanger” or bench singer referred to an itinerant musician or busker who performed in the local tavern while standing on benches. The Italian translation for a “bankelsanger” is “cantastoria”, which means “story singer”, a singer who tells his story while gesturing to a series of painted or printed images. Baroque in style, some music academics believe that the work may have actually been composed by the German composer Daniel Speer (1636–1709).  This lively work is unusual in the quality of its themes and even more so in the antiphonal effects produced by the answering back and forth between various groupings of instruments.

"Who but the best professionals could live up to this ?... Everything about this disc is to be recommended, the recording is crystal clear and the playing and arranging of the first water”

“This is a wonderfully charismatic disc with playing of the highest quality. I cannot recommend it highly enough.”

David Bremner
The Mouthpiece

“Many recordings over the last few decades have demonstrated the superb quality of British brass playing; 'Under the Spell of Spain' will rightfully take its place among them.”

“The arrangements all sound fresh, and the playing is beyond reproach.”

Kevin Morgan

“The end result, is a resounding success. This is not a commercial CD, this is education, passion and self belief written in the sleeve notes”
