Rosas das Rosas: Centuries of dedication and folklore in the chapels and courts of early Italy, Spain and Portugal produced music with rhythms that reverberated across the Mediterranean. In this recording spanning three centuries of vocal and instrumental music, a diverse collection of lyric poetry, dances, Italian spiritual songs, and Galician-Portuguese cantigas de Santa Maria tell of the Virgin’s sometimes-humorous, always-incredible miracles.

The Road to Compostela: Chant and polyphony from the 12th-century manuscript Codex Calixtinus along with new music written specially for The Rose Ensemble by Minnesota composers Victor Zupanc and J. David Moore. Truly some of the most virtuosic medieval vocal music ever written and some of the most beautiful music we’ve commissioned.

Land of Three Faiths: The result of years of intensive research and training, “Land of Three Faiths” offers music that is at once sacred, secular, folk, and classical. Featuring instruments and musical ideas that blur the lines between Arabic and European, this CD provides a fascinating exploration of language, spirituality, and cultural exchange. Steeped in the rich history of the Abrahamic faiths the CD features laments of the Sephardic Jews, Arab-Andalusian dances and Spanish court songs, Hebrew cantillation, and Gregorian chant meet the mystical world of Sufi poetry.

Celebremos el Niño: Early Mexican music resounds in this joyful program featuring over two centuries of festive Christmas dances and villancicos from the great cathedrals of Puebla and Mexico City. Accompanied by lively percussion, viola da gamba and vihuela da mano, solos and choruses burst forth in this holiday recording that’s anything but typical!
