CD "Missa de Rèquiem" by Jaume Alaquer

On Monday, the Maó City Hall held the presentation of the new "Missa de Rèquiem" by the Menorca Composer Jaume Alaquer (Maó 1785 - La Habana 1823), a new CD recorded by Ona Digital and edited by Blau that will be included in the collection "Compositors de les Illes Balears".

The Compact Disc, that was recorded live in the concert held at the Santa Maria Parish in Maó, on November 11, 2000, is the result of a project initiated in 1999 by the UIB, the Fundació Rubió i Tudurí and the Orgue Santa Maria de Maó Foundation, with the aim of recovering this important work of the Menorcan musical patrimony.

The concert, conducted by Joan Company –also responsible for the transcription and revision of the work–, was performed by the mezzosoprano Raquel Pierotti, the tenor Luca Casalin, the baritone Joan Pons, the Orquestra de Cambra Illa de Menorca and the Coral de Sant Antoni de Maó.
