Juan Garc?a de Salazar was a Spanish Baroque composer from the Basque country who spent most of his career working at Zamora Cathedral; he is so obscure the entry for him in the New Grove doesn't even include a list of his works. Musicologist Manuel Sagastume Arregi has pulled together a number of Salazar's extant movements related to the Vespers service with additional material to create Juan Garc?a de Salazar: Complete Vespers of Our Lady in Naxos' Spanish Classics series. It is performed by the Basque ensemble Capilla Pe?aflorida and features the period wind group Ministriles de Marsias and the fine baritone of Josep Cabr?. There are no stars here, though -- everything on Juan Garc?a de Salazar: Complete Vespers of Our Lady is done to the service of the music, which is outstanding. Sagastume Arregi's realization of Garc?a de Salazar's Vespers service incorporates appropriate plainchant sections taken from a Basque hymnal dated 1692, organ music by Garc?a de Salazar's contemporaries Jos? Ximenez and Mart?n Garcia de Olag?e, instrumental arrangements of Garc?a de Salazar's motets, and an arrangement of Tom?s Luis de Victoria's Vidi speciosam probably made by Garc?a de Salazar himself.

Although technically Baroque music and dating from the late seventeenth century, it is not surprising that Garc?a de Salazar's music contains a fair amount of modeling from Renaissance practices. The organ music, played by Javier Saras?a, is splendid and played on a single-manual instrument that betrays that distinctive nasal tonal quality endemic to Spanish organs. Most of the texts are in Latin, but there are a few sections scored out in rapid-fire Castilian Spanish, as well. One can hardly think of a genre more obscure than Basque Baroque sacred music, and the resulting lack of familiarity might serve to scare some potential listeners away. They would be missing out, because everything about Juan Garc?a de Salazar: Complete Vespers of Our Lady is glorious and beautiful -- the singing, the ambience of the unnamed cathedral in Villabuena where this was recorded, the instrumental playing, organ, and music. Rather than pulling something out of the mothballs that was better left in the closet, Manuel Sagastume Arregi has discovered through his hard work on behalf of Basque sacred music an entire musical style that should prove a revelation, and a delight, to all. -- Uncle Dave Lewis
