Christmas Delights from the Mexican Baroque

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!


All-American Songs of Temperance and Temptation

Featuring the songs and stories of 19th-century Temperance Union meetings, old-time gospel, ragtime, Victorian parlor songs, 1920s anti-Prohibition tunes, and one of Irving Berlin’s best show-stoppers, it’s The Rose Ensemble like you’ve never heard before!  40-page booklet contains extensive program notes, historical photos, full-color images, and a link to an exclusive webpage featuring bonus tracks and complete lyrics.
