The instrumental music repertory kept in the music archives of Chiquitos (Archivo Musical de Chiquitos) consist of two major collections: a) music for an instrumental ensemble; b) keyboard music. Each of these contains approximately 200 works of music (either fragmentary or complete works). It is difficult to maintain that such a large number of works was to be found in each of the Jesuit settlements. It is possible that the musical libraries of the guaran settlements were even larger. Since these documents have disappeared altogether, we can neither confirm nor deny their existence. On the other hand, in the archives of the missionary post in Moxos, where 4000 sheets of music are kept, the instrumental works do not exceed 20 and are generally fragments of sonatas, concertos and dances. No instrumental music has been found, not even fragments. In among the quartets, dances, partitas, concertos, symphonies and sonatas belonging to the music collection of Chiquitos, the latter, numbering approximately 110 compositions, are the best known. In most cases, the copyist left no details regarding the composer. The ones of which the composer is mentioned or recognized by the musicologists that have studied the music collection of Chiquitos, were written by Arcangelo Corelli, Antonio Vivaldi, Niccol Jommelli, Ignazio Balbi, Pietro Locatelli, Giovanni Battista Sammartini, Nicola Calandro and Domingo Poretti. Ten sonatas that were attributed to Arcangelo Corelli make him the most popular and prolific composer of instrumental music in the ancient Jesuit missionary posts. On the other hand, no instrumental music has ever been found that could prove beyond any doubt that the composer

Press reviews

BBC Music Magazine

Pliant tenor Henry Villea anchors the vocal ensembles and relishes a decidedly chirpy setting of Quis me a te sponse separabit. Even more impressive than Vol. 1 this mission statement is a must. Spread the word!!

Gramophone

Florilegium’s follow-up is similarly terrific, comprising a wealth of discoveries, all given performances that show just how much the participant believe in the project.

Choral Journal

Florilegium has presented to the world music that is seldom heard today and might otherwise have been forgotten forever. After volume 1, I have been anxiously awaiting their return. After volume 2, I say, Why can’t they come back now?

The Guardian

Florilegium and their Bolivian soloists perform these pieces with wonderful verve, with imagination and resourcefulness.

The Times

Florilegium climbed the heights of dancing bliss and left the Wigmore sighing with pleasure.

Classic Fm

Thumbs up to al. Worth its money for Bassanis sparky Mass setting alone.

American Record Guide

Lovely performances, every one, of music that has been in the dark too long.

Concerto

Musik als betrendes Mittel zur Glaubensverkndigung () () eine flexible, homogene Gruppe mit jungendlichen Stimmen. Vielleicht trgt auch das zur authentisch-heiteren Stimmung dieser Einspielung bei?

Kultuurradio

wirklich erfrischend und unkonventionell. Man merkt: sie singen ihre Musik.

Luister

De koorleden leveren hier een verbluffende prestatie () () Spetterende arrangementen van en door Florilegium. Dit is typerend voor de mate waarin het Britse ensemble zich betrokken voelt bij deze Bolivianen en dit repertoire. () () een uitgave om in de armen te sluiten.

Toccata

Also, dies ist eine sehr schöne Aufnahme eines interessanten Programms.
