Historic Organs of Oaxaca, Mexico, Vol. V

$14.98

The fifth CD of the series presents a program of Oaxacan folk music played on the Cathedral organ by Cicely Winter with accompaniment by percussionist Valentín Hernández. This recording presents an unexpected combination of two aspects of Oaxaca’s rich musical heritage–today’s vibrant folk music played on a pipe organ from the colonial past. However, this is not as strange as it may seem. This music is typically played by local brass bands, and the organ is capable of sounding like a complete band in itself. The organ is complemented here by various percussion instruments: the standard combination of bass drum, snare drum, and cymbal, along with rattles, a triangle, a scraper, a traditional village drum and a conch shell trumpet. It is our hope that this recording of well-known music will not only delight its listeners, but also entice Oaxacans to go and hear the actual organs. It is possible that it may also help preserve the non-functioning organs in the villages as people realize how their organs once sounded and how they may someday sound again.
